Create stunning word cloud infographs
April 2, 2011 § 4 Comments
Sometimes everybody is in on the secret, and somehow you are left out. That’s the case with me and wordle. So, if there’s anyone else in this world who hasn’t heard about wordle yet (which I doubt), this is what it does: it is a web app that creates beautiful word clouds from any text or URL you submit. It allows you to change fonts, colors and layout. It basically allows you to create stunning infographs based on word occurance to use in an essay, presentation or website and blog post. Try wordle-ing articles, novels, song lyrics, letters, ads or whatever else comes to mind.
It is very addictive; I’ve just spent the last half an hour wordle-ing the lyrics of some of my old favorites. Can you guess what they are? (Highlight the text to view the artists and songs)
Highlight: PJ Harvey “The Mess We’re In”
Highlight: Yeah Yeah Yeahs “Maps”, Red Hot Chilli Peppers “Under The Bridge”
See more word clouds after the jump
Highlight: Nick Cave “The Ship Song”, Bjork “Hyperballad
Highlight: Pixies “Hey”, Cake “Italian Leather Sofa”
