I love paper projects and I love infographics so of course I was thrilled when I found the book project Dear Gretchen by US designer Gretchen Nash. The charts show loads of different info on (possibly) every letter she has ever recieved. I just love the outcome!

Uhhhhh! One of my faves has updated since my last visit to his online home. I am talking about the information master a.k.a. Nicholas Felton. There’s lots of new infographics on his site for you to enjoy.

If you’re a fan of Julian’s “So you need a typeface” then look here! The famous flowchart is now available as a poster and it is essential to everyone who calls themselves graphic designers. Julian, if you wanna suck up to your professor you’ll give me one for free which will decorate my already crowded office :-) but for all you guys out there HERE’s the place to get it!

I never usually feature my students but I’m going to make an exception, we had such a brilliant critique today that I just want to say “Thank god for passionate students like mine!”. You guys rock!! (in spite of our verbal whupping; better to have tried and failed than not to have tried at all). So let’s end the week with a student project, an info graphic related to the job we do as graphic designers. Julian did a flowchart of the choices we go through choosing fonts, with a humorous approach. A brilliant job on such a short project.

Be sure to click the pics to see a bigger version as it doesn’t come across in all its glory in small versions.

I love infographics so when I came across Infojocks I was thrilled. These guys (in their own words) make sense of sports statistics and for a complete sport illiterate like myself that’s a good thing. There isn’t much on their website yet but I think these guys are worth keeping an eye on. For now, enjoy this chart on taxonomy of team names.

You can also buy it as a poster from their website:

Each year Nicholas Felton does an annual report of what he has done during the last year. It includes all the important and unimportant detals of his life like what he’s been eating, drinking and listening too. The design is always really crisp, mostly type and infographic but it’s a real joy to look through.
