totally tuned-in infographic — September 7, 2017

totally tuned-in infographic

Big British bands explored in highly clickable typographic map.

I would love to see an Aussie version synched like this! Have a play with this uk music map. It’s cool that Ireland is also on the map even if there’s no mention of U2. Maybe the Aussie version could include NZ bands and artists. You’d hope the Finn brothers would get a place.

Anyway, when it comes to music, you could say that the UK is home to lots of musical headliners. Despite its physical size, the UK has produced bands, artists and music scenes that have been dominant world-wide.

This super clever (and simple) interactive infographic takes you on a tour of the best UK music. In it the names of various bands and artists cover the town or area where they hail from to make up a musical map of the UK. Many of the band and artist names are styled using fonts and logos to match the band’s.

When you click on an artist’s name, you even get a refresher of their best song, chart performance and net worth.

The UK music industry is one of the biggest in the world with a rich history, but although London is the main hub, it’s also apparent that music is universal – singers and bands come from all over. Perhaps due to London’s sheer density, it does have its own pull-out map, though so users can explore it’s big-ness in more depth.

This infographic could have so many different applications. For instance, you could have one that was entirely devoted to Jazz n Blues Bands and the map could be shaped like the grounds of the Byron Bay Blues Fest. This’d make a great app for festival funsters too. The typography could be a little bit muddy and squelchy, just like the real thing!

Have fun finding out about all the facts and figures behind your favourite musicians.

hello, i’m meg:

welcome to my blog. It’s part of my Communication Design degree at Billy Blue, Brisbane. I’m including some design inspirations and examples from our classes + some of my personal favourites. Say hello here or check out my square pics or maybe tweet. Got some thoughts or maybe an eg: or two ? It’s kinda fun to be inspired then go and be inspiring too.

it’s about some favourite meg design examples. at the moment I’ve started a new uni subject called “fashion and social media”. I’m pretty keen to learn some new insights…so let’s see what’s revealed!

This little ad lit me up. Clever and catchy and I wanna learn how to do it. “Future with bright lights” is a video created by Japanese infrastructure company Kandenko. Combining elements of tech and art, the vid uses a silver ink circuit pen developed to show how each individual can illuminate the future.

Bright lights give you so happy days
Shining future will be right there there
Bright lights give you so lovely days
Shining future will be soon there there
Take hands each other and go ahead with your heart

Look at what you see in light
Close your eyes and feel the brightness
It’s supposed to be in your hand
Make it better in the future

imagine what a note could do — September 16, 2016

imagine what a note could do

this is a very endearing animation. I love how it is integrated with social media to create memorability and encourage action. 

From back in 2012 this billboard has been redesigned to be an interactive donation box. When 2 euros are donated directly on the billboard, the various MISEREOR aid projects visually come to life. A built-in camera takes a pic of the generous donator which they can post on Facebook and then share info about the promo, enabling MISEREOR to start up an online dialogue. Powerful.
