Put Spending in Perspective

By annie.bru

This infographic pulls numbers from a couple different articles in the bullet. I designed it to show some of the school's recent spending versus in-state tuition for one student.

Infographic: Coffee Consumption in the USA

By ModernSelkie

An infographic about the consumption of coffee in the USA, broken down by the amount consumed, how it is consumed, and finally what that means globally.

I used contrast between the white text and coffee stain background to maintain the focus of the piece while adding interest. I selected a serif font for the title and a sans serif for the majority of the text, this creates interest with the title but keeps the majority of the work easy to read. There is contrast with two of the numbers I quote. The numeric portion doesn't always quite fit in with the text around it: it is both...


A Divided Nation

By anonnymoose

The goal of this infographic was to convey some of the information I've uncovered about Belgium in the course of my research. I was actually really pleased with the result, even though I had to remove much of the information I wanted to add for the sake of space and time. At first I had a hard time figuring out what to use for this project, since I am more familiar with Illustrator than some other vector editors, but I wasn't about to shell out major money for it or spend hours in one of the labs on campus. I ended up creating some of the images in Raven before eventually downloading...


The Scream (Never Say Never)

By hexadismal

“The vibrations in the air not only affected my eye, but my ear as well because I really heard a scream, and then I painted The Scream." Edvard Munch never intended to send an ambiguous message with his reputable painting. The concatenation of this distinct onslaught of psychological sight and sound reverberate through his brushstrokes so that viewers can not only see but hear the image before them. As the template for my image, The Scream (Never Say Never), this value still holds. This, along with additional coded iconic messages, meets with underlying non-coded...


An Image Within An Image

By ModernSelkie

Images are rarely simple. Life is complex, and so too are the things which reflect life. Often there are images within images, layers stacked on top of each other, which provide more than one fixed meaning. In the image discussed here, there are literally multiple images within the image. This often provides depth, but also means that the image is difficult to deconstruct. Moreover, as Roland Barthes discusses in his piece Rhetoric of the Image, there are multiple levels to an image; an image does not simply tell one story. It tells several, on multiple levels.

If one...


Flower Girl

By shannotate

My grandmother always used to tell me the story of the little flower girl, Phyllis. Phyllis was grandma's younger cousin who had been volunteered to walk down the aisle, throwing roses at my grandmother's wedding. She had offered to go pick the flowers herself in the back of our now old house, in the forest where we'd walk our dog. I doing so one day and came upon this field of white flowers and saw a quick flash of white light. My camera was able to capture details that my eye couldn't see, and when I got home to develop the film, this is what I saw. They had looked for Phyllis for...


The Warblers vs New Directions: Who Sings About What?

By bellekid

Most of what I listen to on my iPod is "Glee" related music. I've fallen in love with the Warblers this season and after seeing what Wordle could do I decided to use it to compare the lyrical content of group songs sung by New Directions (the main glee club on Glee) versus that of the Warblers (their rivals.)

To do this I got the lyrics to all the group songs from New Directions and all of the Warblers songs and made word clouds of them. I then listed out the 50 biggest words from each and decided to see what overlapped between the two groups and what did not.

In the end I...



By yogini

Every time I go over to my friend's house, I keep catching glimpses of this guy looking in through the window. The only problem is that I never see him actually in the window, I only see him in the mirror looking through the window. Weird right? My friend swears she's never seen this "guy looking through the window in the mirror before" and thinks I'm a little crazy and paranoid that people are watching us. Well this time I managed to take a pic with my phone that got the window without anyone in it and the mirror with the guy creepin. She believes me now, but new questions arise, who...


Less Yoga = More Stress

By yogini

For this project, I wanted to stay along the lines of the theme of basically everything I've been working on this semester and make the argument that yoga relieves stress levels. I wanted to take the most and least stressed cities in the US and look at how large their yoga community was compared to how stressed the city is. I decided to do this by creating a ratio of the population of the city divided by the number of yoga studios in that city. This ratio would determine how many people there are per yoga studio.

The outline of the US was the best graphic to base this data...


Creepy Catherine

By Emccarthy

Have you ever read Harry Potter? Then you must know about Moaning Myrtle. She haunts the girls bathroom in the Hogwarts castle. Well, this young ghost represented in my picture, is Moaning Myrtle's sister. Creepy Catherine roams around the street in which she got killed by the same snake that instantly killed her sister Myrtle. Catherine hides around the street during the day, but when the sun goes down she comes out and haunts all the villagers.
