This infographic was made with the graphic design software Venngage.
This infographic that was done in 2013 by Oxfam International is a beautiful example of the power of visualization and how imagery can help make complex information easy to understand. As Kate Ryan writes in Good Food:
So whether you’re looking to stock up on anything from orange soda to latte-flavored potato chips, Mondelez, Kraft, Coca-Cola, Nestlé, PepsiCo, P&G, Johnson & Johnson, Mars, Danone, General Mills, Kellogg’s, and Unilever own just about everything you could hope to buy. It seems that six degrees of separation theory has been proven after all, if only because we all drink Diet Coke every now and then…In order to visually elucidate that point, Oxfam International created a comprehensive infographic that reveals the extensive reach of the “Big 10” food and beverage companies.
Just outside of Las Vegas there is a new public artwork display. Artist Ugo Rondinone has created “seven thirty to thirty-five-foot high dayglow totems comprised of painted, locally-sourced boulders.” Having recently seen it, I don’t think there is a way to describe the breathtaking visual impact these vividly colored boulders have against the clear blue sky and desert landscape. It’s invigorating. Luckily, Vital Vegas, with the help of a drone, made this beautiful video.
Shutterstock pulled data from millions of online searches across the globe to discover “what subjects, what concepts, what colors and patterns are inspiring people of today’s creative-verse.” This infographic shows their findings, along with predictions of what’s to come in 2016.
Coastal Creative’s infographic shows us “the next evolution of design for the upcoming year.”
Chelsea Kerwin (Beyond Search) writes about a new search engine called Niice. “It is focused on inspiration search and the presentation of quality images to spark ideas…Somewhat like Pinterest, Niice allows users to create ‘moodboards’ or collections of images which can be saved, collaborated on, or downloaded as JPEGs.”
This site is well worth a look and the demo on how to create a moodboard is both audibly and visually appealing. “No noise. Just the good stuff….Just beautiful, inspiring design from hand-picked sources.”
