TED on Objects That Tell Stories


Found on TED, a worth while video to watch – Yves Behar, Designer – speaks on Objects That Tell Stories. The approach is spot on and translate to any design or communication. Very inspiering design and thought. Check out fuseproject site as well…
A quote from the profile page summarize this quite well:

“[Behar] has the ability to strip something down to its basic functional logic and then apply a set of emotional and aesthetic considerations to create something unique. It’s an art.”Chris Hacker, chief design officer at Johnson & Johnson

Addictive Word Clouds

 CV Cloud by Wordle
(Generated from my CV)

Found this cool site that makes visual sense out of text – Wordle. Generates word clouds form any text you past in or takes info from your del.icio.us account. Great part is that you can then play around with the clouds design by changing color schemes, fonts and positions. This is ye candy for a visual guy like me. And it actually gives you a great overview on what the texts are about. Created one form my CV and one form my del.icio.us account. Thanks to  Dion Hinchcliffe for pointing this out and  Jonathan Feinberg for creating this great tool. Now go create @ Wordle.

You never know it might inspire someone. Enjoy.

#1 – This one has been with me since 1996
It all started in a project at school (Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale) where we where asked to create a poster design on two criteria – pick a non-profit org. and a quote that mean something to you and make them work together. And so I did… I found this quote from an American essayist, philosopher, poet – Ralph Waldo Emerson“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” and picked The National Geographic Society and made this:

Comments are welcome! (just remember that this was made why back then 😉
(More quote by Ralph here.)

This one felt really relevant at the time – with the internet starting – and still do – with the internet evolving – so it is still around in the back of my head. Now let’s go make some trails…
