Data Visualisation and tools

January 30th, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

In a previous Article I pictured Data Presentations of Visual Complexitiy It intends to be a resource space for anyone interested in the visualization of complex networks. And to present complex network structurs in a visual language system. Data presentation can be beautiful, elegant and descriptive.
In the following article I want to show you interactive tools working for example with music like this one narratives2.0 and tools for creating your own visualizations. Most Data Graphics are unfortunately not for free but they allow us an insight in visual and structural thinking an inspiring graphic work. Thats why I am posting these information graphics, there are beautiful though they have so many details to capture. Wrapping your brain around data online can be challenging, especially when dealing with huge volumes of information. The best are summarized here.

MUSA: Portuguese Design Collective

December 20th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

I’d like to indroduce you to MusaCollective. I found these guys  in the IdN 15th Anniversary Edition, where you can find 250 highly talented creators who have collaborated-sharing their thoughts on the past; and their visions of the future.

And I thought maybe one of our authors, Lukas, is interested in their work. He is currently visiting his homeland Portugal, staying in Lisbon. Maybe he knows these Designers.

MusaCollective was formed in 2003 by Raquel Viana, Paulo Lima and Ricardo Alexandre, a Lisbon-based collective of graphic designers. Musa works with as many aspects of design as possible, from artistic/experimental to commercial. The first headline-making event that the collective was involved in was the “MusaTour” in 2004, in support of the MusaBook project, the first Portuguese emergent graphic-design book ever compiled, published by IdN.

Non-Format | Design+Music

April 16th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

I am not sure how well known this talented graphic design duo is. But I don’t want to miss the chance to introduce you to them. Non-Format is an Graphic Design Agency leaded by Kjell Ekhorn (Norwegian) and Jon Forss (British). Now their studio is based in London, UK and in Minneapolis, USA. They show us how outstanding and contrasty puristic work can be. Some of their work is published under ” Die Gestalten Verlag”.

And I just think the title of this piece is suitable for this blog.
