The Crisis of Credit Visualized

The Crisis of Credit is a fantastic example of informational graphics at its best. The project was created by Jonathan Jarvis as part of his thesis work in the Media Design Program at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

The video (below) does an artful job of exampling the credit crisis. The visuals are essential in the explanation of the credit crunch.

Interactive Look at Tennis Court Surfaces

There is a very cool article over on the New York Times website about the differences in clay, grass and hard courts in tennis. The site makes great use of animation and info-graphics.

I know that the newspaper industry is supposedly really struggling right now and all, but if any of them need a hint about how to make an effective online presence (read: worth going to), they should take a good long look at the New York Times website. The design is fantastic and they often really take advantage of the interactive side of the web.

I really wish The Boston Globe would take the hint.

Operation Logic for Dog

Khoi Vihn has posted a fantastic logic flowchart for his dog Mister President.

My favorite part of the whole chart is the “Beg Cycle,”:

Did I get it? → No → Beg → Did I get it? → No → Beg

I think that this chart fits in quite nicely with my Computer Organization and Architecture course that I’m currently taking.
