As you may know by now, Inspired Magazine is a sucker for data visualization. That’s why we invited Tony Shin – a social media ninja and creative design samurai – to curate the weekly dose of infographics. If you like them as much as we do check out some of the older editions and follow Tony on Twitter and Facebook as well!
For those that celebrated the 4th of July, I hope it was a relaxing weekend and to all my fellow North Americans up there who celebrated Canada Day; I hope you safely returned home without getting a flash bang grenade thrown at your lower extremities. *wink* Regardless, I do hope that all of you stayed safe! Perhaps because of the weekend where Americans rips off their shirts and drink ’til they drop, the vast selection or inspirational infographics were a bit poor.
1. The Biggest Tech IPOs of this Year
Regardless, I do hope that all of you stayed safe! Perhaps because of the weekend where Americans rips off their shirts and drink ’til they drop, the vast selection or inspirational infographics were a bit poor. However, Single Grain’s graphic on the biggest tech IPOs this year, really caught my eye. The use of data and information! =) It’s pretty easy but I’ll touch base with you either tomorrow or Sunday.
2. The State of Education
With advances being made every day, it’s hard for education to keep up. It’s just one of those issues that need to be addressed, but as we know, it’s not just some walk in the park. I featured this one because it literally hit home for me. The Online Education team using the college rule notebook paper and creating the student-like point of view, as if a child were expressing their concerns, was completely ingenious. And completely hand drawn. The illustrations were down to the teeth, as if you were a student who doodled because they were bored and needed to be heard. =)
Take a look, you’ll see what I mean.
3. That’s What THAY Say
“ Hunch has a new product. It’s supposed to change our lives and revolutionize the Internet. THAY (Teach Hunch About You) asks the person a series of questions to find recommendations to the wherever it is, that Hunch thinks is best for you. For a bit more elaboration, go to Tim’s post and learn a little more about this scary but exciting new product.
