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.

Back from holiday and now on with the business of real life. Over the next two months, while searching for a job, I'll be producing a number of pieces of writing and design which will ultimately go up on a new site. Until then, keep yourselves busy with this lot:

Just before I went away, in the midsts of the riots, the Guardian made these great before-and-after interactives. Check it out:


In a lecture on flight dynamics I remember being shown a similar clip to this. Awesome slow-mo clip of an eagleowl landing. Footage like this forms a huge part of the development of the science regarding flight dynamics, which is then used in plane design etc etc. Terrifying:


One of the pieces of writing I've got planned is about dinosaurs; this little video is the perfect warm-up for that. Really great - "Jurassic Park Infographics"

Raptor from Tal Moskovich on Vimeo.


I've watched this promo from the BBC 3 times - beautiful animation:

BBC KNOWLEDGE 60 from iamrader on Vimeo.

Also, check out that users other videos on vimeo for some nice little animations.


Lastly, some sexy stats for you, presented fantastically. Click below to go to the interactive results of the "Sexperience" survey.

#123; holiday and a website

I'm off on holiday to Switzerland for three weeks, so things will be quiet here. But do not fear - September will (hopefully) bring a revamped website and blog, so stay tuned, amigos.

Until then, check out my latest project - the design of Cambridge writer Matthew Pink's website.
