Real World Infographics in 3-D

Posted in design, illustration, photography by aldorf on April 27, 2011

Infographics in 2-D are great, but real life, 3-D infographics are even more mesmerizing and interesting. Jose Duarte, a graphic designer, has been using found physical objects to present his data findings. For example, the balloons you see above represent the amount of Internet users there are in (from left to right) China, Europe, India, Brazil, Mexico, and Portugal. (via Holy Kaw!)

“State of Cloud Computing” by Jess3

Posted in Animation, design, illustration, internet, Media, web by aldorf on April 19, 2011

Visit http://www.thestateofcloudcomputing.com/ for up to the minute stats on cloud computing.

“State of Cloud Computing,” is an encompassing look at the history of cloud computing and the growing cloud economy.

The State of Cloud Computing video highlights the multitude of possibilities that cloud computing offers, from sharing videos and photos from anywhere in the world to storing and organizing data for remote access. Skype, Dropbox, YouTube, Wikipedia, Yahoo, MSN, Gmail, Farmville and Twitter are all referenced, and the video provides a snapshot of statistics.

The fact is, unless you have been living under a rock, you are in the cloud. Cloud computing touches us in numerous ways in our daily lives. As cloud computing continues to evolve, so does our ability to express ourselves and accomplish amazing things on the World Wide Web.

The conversation about cloud computing is happening around us. The three-minute video is hosted on a micrositehttp://www.thestateofcloudcomputing.com that aggregates the conversation about cloud computing across the web, including Top Cloud Computing Links, Top Cloud Computing Terms and Cloud Computing Around The Web, which pulls Tweets in real-time that are related to the cloud.

Sponsored by salesforce.com, an enterprise cloud computing company, and produced in collaboration with JESS3, a creative interactive agency, the video is part of a broader family of videos, The “State of” series, which launched earlier in 2010.

SXSW…Holler Gram…Cool, Clever, Simple and Effective New App

Posted in conference, design, ideas, illustration, innovation, Media, your take on... by aldorf on March 8, 2011

Thanks to Made by Many for this great new App. Very effective and fun to use. Not only at keynotes, not only at SXSW. This is the future of getting peoples opinion, attention and stats.

Holler Gram

You know how sometimes during a keynote or pitch you would really want to say something back to the speaker? So you wait until the speaker is done and put your hand up. Well, unless you are Robert Scoble of course. Or unless you have an iPad with Holler Gram installed. Or pick any of the pre-formatted shoutouts or make your own using your choice of fonts and colors.

You can even tweet your shout right from the app.

Holler Gram was made for SXSW specifically but I can totally imagine it will be popular at all events this year. As the  author explains “You can even rate sessions by holding up a giant number display to become the ultimate armchair critic”. How awesome is that? (via thenextweb.com)

Dutch vodka company Ketel One approached Droog to develop an animation for Ketel One agents and bartenders to understand and spread the message behind the bottle. Working with illustrator, Clo’e Floirat, they developed this one minute animation to bring the story of Ketel One to life. Charming and simple.
