GOOD’s Transparency Infographics Present Data Creatively

Transparency Infographic from GOOD Magazine

Transparency Infographic from GOOD Magazine

GOOD is a collaboration of individuals, businesses, and nonprofits “pushing the world forward.” Their articles cover a broad spectrum of topics including better living, improving the environment, design solutions, business, and technology. I’m particularly drawn to their Transparency section, housing graphical explorations of data in the world around us. Their self-titled “infographics” present data in a clear and elegant fashion, using beautifully illustrated vector graphics and icons, and immediately communicate their findings to the viewer. Check out one of my favorites, the Hall of Mascots, a look at the mascots of football, basketball, hockey, and baseball, and how they are divided among the animal kingdom.

What if Microsoft redesigned the iPod packaging? How many times have I seen projects go down this road. This is a great lesson in how simple is better. This is why I’m a minimalist.

Karate School Ad

December 28, 2005 at 10:32 am

I found this great karate school print ad at Advertising/Design Goodness, who actually spotted the ad at TWENTY FOUR. Sambit Mohanty from Vyas Gianetti Creative designed the ad and it recently won an Abby Gold & a New York Silver award. I wonder who will find this ad through my site and then post it on theirs. Great concept, Sambit.

Buro Vormkrijgers is a wonderfully inventive furniture and lighting design studio. Makers of the genius Pong Clock, these guys have some truly fantastic objects in their portfolio. I think it’s time to redecorate.
