Who sang what?

March 22, 2013 § Leave a comment

Sometimes you discover online something that combines two things you love and then you realize that all that procrastination was actually worth it. So for today’s pleasure combo I present to you one three Beatles infographs, charting the instrumentation of all of their songs, in their three phases.

I consider the haircut chart a bonus:

A girl with colitis goes by…

March 29, 2012 § 4 Comments

In the early days of the web, Am I Right was one of the funniest sites there was: a database of misheard lyrics. The misunderstanding of the psychedelic Beatles lyrics “A girl with kaleidoscope eyes” with the absurdist “A girl with colitis goes by” is still one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.

The Beatles mondegreen

And now there is a wonderful infograph by direct lyrics, to summarize the most common mistakes. Wasn’t it about time?

Adele mondegreen

By the way, Am I Right has also published a collection of misheard lyrics in Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza: And Other Misheard Lyrics.

Infographics: now and then

July 10, 2011 § 1 Comment

Yeah , we live in the age of infographics. We know it, already. It is the new way to convey information from the most trivial to the most complex. However, the need to visualise data doesn’t seem so new after all. From the beginning of the last century, artists and designers were looking for new ways to share information in a visually engaging manner, as these 1940′s copies of the Fortune magazine reveal. It seems that the only things that have truly changed are the techniques and the media.

1984, A brave new world

June 28, 2011 § Leave a comment

How did the future that George Orwell and Aldous Huxley visualised turn out to be? The following infographic, created by Column Five for Akorn Entertainment, compares the concepts of 1984 and Brave New World to the current state of the Internet, as it has been evolved through the Internet censorship techniques of the East and the continuous stream of trivial information of the West.

Making (non) sense

June 14, 2011 § 2 Comments

There is an infographic for everything. From comparing the most controversial figures, like the Beatles & Jesus or even Kanye West to Bob Dylan, to unraveling the universe of your social self and from exploring theories, genres and art movements, such as science fiction or graffiti and street art to explaining the form of the infograph itself in a rather self-referential mode.

It is the new form of conveying easily and visually appealing information, but Chad Hagen’s ‘Nonsensical Infographics’ convey no information, they play rather with form than function and remain visually challenging.

It’s all about me

June 8, 2011 § 1 Comment

OK, we all know that Facebook is the shrine of narcissism and self-reference. And the apps that I am going to present are a tribute to the “cult of me”. But they are so well done that they are practically irresistible.

Deutsche Post’s Social Memories creates a booklet filled with infographics based on the public info on your Facebook profile. While the digital version of the booklet is free, you need to pay 19 € for the bound version in glossy paper.

Intel’s Museum of Me, on the other hand, is a virtual exhibition of, well, you. Again using data from your public info it creates 3D gallery views of your photos, friends, words most used on your status updates, etc.

Or in this case, the message is the branding. Another confirmation of the fact that the best ideas are the simplest. Case in point: a milk carton that wears its nutritional facts as its branding. Aka, infographic packaging.
