An Infographic about Infographics

An Infographic about Infographics | Other Topics | Scoop.it

The last in a series of infographics about visual data design, we have covered why it's useful to create them, created an embed code generator for you and written an article on promoting infographics. We felt a fitting end to the series would be - you guessed it - an infographic.

 

This infographic (about infographics of course) goes through 4 stages of creating an infographic: research, design, publishing and promotion offering tips at each stage. If you are thinking about making your own infographics this not only provides some great tips but acts as a good example of an infographic itself...

It's Thanksgiving here in the US tomorrow (Nov. 22) and what a perfect time to count our blessings. No matter where you are in the world, I am so thankful for each one of you out there and your loyal following. You are very special and I appreciate all of your support, comments, help, and the pleasure of getting to know you better.

You've Made A Difference
As Thanksgiving Day approaches,
Our blessings we recall;
The things we are most thankful for,
We recollect them all.
You are really special,
In all you say and do.
You've made a difference in our lives;
We're thankful now for you.

Brands For Your Company’s Customized Shirts, Part Two | Other Topics | Scoop.it

Ok so last time we took a look at different brands to use as blanks for customized shirts that will bear your company’s logo.

 

Although we are talking about t-shirts and polos, as you can see by the picture in this article, we’re not just limited to those items. Think about Custom Printed Woven Shirts, Custom Apparel Sportswear, Custom Printed Bags, Embroidered Jackets, Customized Hats and Caps and many more possibilities.

 

So we looked at American Apparel, Gildan, Hanes and Fruit of the loom. All good shirt brands. Now let’s look at some more.

Human Conflict Seen From Space

Human Conflict Seen From Space | Other Topics | Scoop.it

I'll let Douglas Keeney's own words and this image speak for themselves: "The geography of human conflict as seen from space at night. The Strait of Hormuz as seen at night from the space station is a beautiful lesson in the geography of conflict. How much we learn by simply tracing the fingers of human populations as seen superimposed over the geography of Earth. Enjoy."

The Changing Goals of Data Visualization

The Changing Goals of Data Visualization | Other Topics | Scoop.it

'The visual representation of data has gone through a number of phases, with its goals switching back and forth between analysis and presentation over time.

The first uses of graphics to represent data, interestingly, were very bare and abstract, and at the same time were mostly tools for communication. The abstract nature of these early charts is surprising when you consider the amount of ornamentation and decoration that was common with even simple household objects in the early to middle of the 19th century.'

 

The article goes on to briefly describe and provide examples for the following eras of 200 years in visualization theory and practice:

Early to Mid–1800s: Playfair, Nightingale, Snow, Minard 1920–30s: Neurath 1960–70s: Bertin and Tukey 1970–80s: Holmes 1980s: Tufte 2000s: INFOGRAPHICs vs. Visualization

A recommended read for anyone interested in a short history of data analysis and means of visual communication.

Product Storytelling – Don’t Forget the Context « A Random Jog

Product Storytelling – Don’t Forget the Context « A Random Jog | Other Topics | Scoop.it

"When launching a new product, it is important that customers understand what problems your product is solving. You don’t have time to tell a long story so you need to make sure your message is effective in creating a desire to learn more. This is where context can help. If you are trying to tell a story about your product, context is the background information that helps the scene make sense. Without this context, you leave it up to the customer to figure it out on their own."

Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 28, 2012 6:17 PM

Truer words couldn't be said! The author has great advice for how to create context around a product that allows the business to share its product story more effectively.


And I love that the author, Joshua Duncan uses the latest Microsoft commercial to make his point. I enjoy watching the commercial. But I agree with Joshua -- as a sales piece it doesn't work. And it is certainly not a story.


As you read what Joshua has written, don't forget to click through to his earlier post on how context does work to make a sale. The example he uses is Box.com. You can see context is provided. But I still think Box.com could do better in sharing its story.


Read both and let me know what you think! Do the examples work? Does Box.com really tell it's story? Love to hear your thoughts :)

Laurence Roelants's curator insight, November 29, 2012 3:10 AM

This is almost a tautology - product storytelling  is not conceptual art but is designed to sell....so don't forget the context!

Infographics: More Than Meets Eye...

Infographics: More Than Meets Eye... | Other Topics | Scoop.it

The human brain processes visual information much faster and digests this type of content concurrently, whereas it takes more time to break text down. So, for many, it makes more than just sense to have your complex information delivered to your target audience in the most legible format...


Infographics make good use of brain’s ability to assimilate knowledge and information through the visual medium, making tough-to-crack-data appealing. Simply put, an infographic is a carefully composed collage of images, content, charts, stats, diagrams, animations & video to graphically represent information.

Infographics are used by various quarters such as educational institutions, acadamecians, businesses, newspapers, and just anybody who are serious about putting across their point in the most simplest manner. Infographics take different forms- venn diagrams, charts, timelines, maps and more. They are not merely a design or an image or random data; their purpose should be seen from every angle.
