This blog is now rarely updated, but remains as an archive of bits and pieces I've collected from around the internet. To see what's caught my eye more recently, find me on twitter.

#86; My info

Been a week since the last post - it's also been a week since the first term of my final year at university started, which is why I've been so busy. To make up for it, here are some infographics I've made for Cherwell (as well as a photo of them in action), and a logo I made for a college ball.

An investigation into the prices at local supermarkets yielded these results:

Some stats from the Browne Review:

All in the paper:

And St Catz Ball logo:

I'm mad busy at the moment, and it's late. Will do my best to keep posting things as and when I can.

Check out these. Every letter, featured in a little animation. Here's 'B':

Also, to keep with the Sesame Street theme, Grover does Old Spice. Lol.

Also, my work is being featured on the OxAdSoc homepage at the moment. Go check it.

#84; Data visualisation

I love good infographics and clever visual representations of data. I think they play an important role in conveying ideas and data, and love their recent rise in popularity. Anyone interested check out Information is Beautiful, FlowingData, the Guardian Data blog and the Feltron reports(one man's life, visualized beautifully).
Then watch this film - very interesting (if you're interested in this sort of thing...). More info & notes are here, too:

#83; Animation & advert

Nice stop motion video:

and an interesting new ad. Well, really cool visuals created in an interesting way, preceded by some advertising flouncy language. Fast-forward to 2.30 for the ad:

#82; lots of stuff

Several things have caught my eye recently. Just moved back to Oxford so have been mad busy and not put anything up for a few days, so here it all is:

Firstly, a very cute and clever animation. Very simple idea, done really well. This is sweet:

The Guardian released this ad for its film season. 26 films featured, how many can you name? I can get about 15...

Eye Magazine have written a post about some great Aids awareness posters, like this one:
Lots more on the site - go read!

I LOVE these, from Aaron Leighton:

And finally, 
Someone called Johnny Selman is designing a poster every day for a year, based on the day's BBC headline. Appropriately called BBCx365, it started in September and he's already made some great images. Go Look:
