An Alphabet Designed By 45 Top Creatives Champions Art Education | Students & Teachers | Scoop.it

As part of their rebranding project, non-profit Free Arts NYC asked 45 top creatives to design a letter or symbol to create a font to be used in its new branding. 
Featuring the work of well-known designers, illustrators, artists and typographers, the line-up for the project includes impressive names like Michael Beirut, Diane Von Furstenberg, George Lois and brands such as Warby Parker. 
The resulting font is a wonderfully eclectic mix of artistic styles that reflects the experiences of their creators and serves to show how art has impacted their lives for the good. 

Watch the video about the “A to Z Project” at the link or head over to its website to find out more.

Robin Good's curator insight, November 25, 2013 1:00 PM



Sugarbox is a free web app which allows you to share any web app you are working on with anyone you wish to collaborate with.


To use it, you simply go to the web app, open it and then click on the Sugarbox bookmarklet, and you are ready to invite anyone to co-work with you, in real-time, on that app.


Once you are collaborating with someone you can see their cursor and their name in real time. You can text chat and annotate the screen.


A unique feature also allows you to easily record what's being shown on the screen, including your cursor movements, and can be easily shared with anyone. 


My comment: Excellent resource if you want to collaborate in real-time with someone else on the same app. 


Free to use.


Try it out now: http://www.sugarbox.io/

What Is Visualization?

What Is Visualization? | Students & Teachers | Scoop.it

This seems like a straightforward question, but it’s proven to be a difficult one to answer. Even visualization researchers don’t have a clear definition.

 

Is it synonymous with information graphics? Does visualization have to be computer generated? Does data have to be involved, or can it be abstract? The answers vary depending on who you ask.

 

Visualization is a medium. It’s not just an analysis tool nor just a way to prove a point more clearly through data.


Visualization is like books. There are different writing styles and categories, there are textbooks and there are novels, and they communicate ideas in different ways for varied purposes. And just like authors who use words to communicate, there are rules that you should always follow and others that are guidelines that you can bend and break...

New MIT Media Lab Tool Lets Anyone Visualize Unwieldy Government Data

New MIT Media Lab Tool Lets Anyone Visualize Unwieldy Government Data | Students & Teachers | Scoop.it

DataViva, a project developed in part by Media Lab professor Csar Hidalgo, aims to make a wide swath of government economic data usable with a series of visualization apps.

In the four years since the U.S. government created data.gov, the first national repository for open data, more than 400,000 datasets are available online from 175 agencies. Governments all over the world have taken steps to make data more transparent and available. But in practice, much of that data--accessible as spreadsheets through sites like data.gov--is incomprehensible to the average person.

DataViva offers web apps that turn those spreadsheets into something more comprehensible for the average user. The site, which officially launched last week, has lofty goals: to visualize data encompassing the entire Brazilian economy over the last decade, with more than 100 million interactive visualizations that can be created at the touch of a button in a series of apps. The future of open government isn't just dumping raw datasets onto a server: It's also about making those datasets digestible for a less data-savvy public.
