Top 10 Video Infographics of 2012

Top 10 Video Infographics of 2012 | Other Topics | Scoop.it

In the great tradition of end of year blog posts, here's a feature on the top 10 video infographics of 2012.


Over the year, I’ve curated 222 videos on this site [videoinfographics.net], and reviewed hundreds more. As part of my process of watching and curating so many infographic videos, I started to keep my own 3-star ranking system of these videos in a spreadsheet to help me keep track of those that I think are the most outstanding. The result was about 60 3-star videos in 2012. That’s too many to feature in a top X list so I turned to the Likes and Comments of my top ranked videos (and in doing so eliminated videos only featured on YouTube since YouTube comments are pretty much trash). This resulted in a list of 10 videos that had triple digit Likes on their Vimeo pages.

Voila! A top 10 list. So, in a ascending order, here are the top 10 most liked animated video infographics featured here in 2012, including number of Likes and Comments for each (as of December 30, 2012).

Types of Graphs [infographic]

Types of Graphs [infographic] | Other Topics | Scoop.it
Graphs are a visual treat, as they can present complex information in a quick and easy manner. Mostly graphs are used to reveal a trend, compare statistics or they can be even used to establish relationship between two different variables.

There are several types of graphs and each graph has different display properties to represent the data. Based on the information, choose a graph that depicts data in an effective way.
This infographic shares some interesting information about different graph types.

A Remarkable Animation Of The History Of The Universe

A Remarkable Animation Of The History Of The Universe | Other Topics | Scoop.it
There’s so much we know that we’ll never see. We can extrapolate the concept of the Big Bang--the explosion of everything in the universe from a focused point.
So projects like Beginning, an animation by Grzegorz Nowiński from Novina Studio, are remarkably important. It tells a sort of good parts version of the history of the universe, from the Big Bang to the rise of humankind. Not only is the piece pure visual delight filled with stark textures and fine particle effects that look particularly stunning when projected on water, Beginning is a grounding piece of context--somewhat imagined, sure--but the sort of imagined thing that very much centers our perspective of reality. The average person sort of knows what the Big Bang looked like because of projects like this one, even if Beginning is far more stylized than photoreal.

Beautiful, Nonsensical Infographics by Chad Hagen

Beautiful, Nonsensical Infographics by Chad Hagen | Other Topics | Scoop.it

As any graphic designer surely knows, the Internet is home to at least as many bad (or non-) infographics as it is a source for clearly-articulated, visually-compelling ones. This twofold criteria is the subject of Chad Hagen's "Nonsensical Infographics": they're certainly a treat for the eye... but the mind, not so much. Rather, as the title of the series suggests, the vibrant geometries are intended to be metacommentary on the opacity of these purportedly digestible graphics.

 

From the artist:

The science of infographics is an interesting beast. Infographics' level of success is always based on how much and how well they communicate their data—the classic form follows function. In this series, I reversed these roles—form is king and dictates what the infographic communicates. Welcome to the world of fictional visual information.
