There are some very interesting ways to attract attention to yourself online. An infographic CV is one of those more classy methods. Here are a selection of ones I like (and mine, which you can judge for yourself…)
There is an unfortunate typo, but the design is great, it’s very clear. Negative space is actually a positive thing!
This one is very creative. I immediately followed him on Behance. Check out the brilliance of this paper infographic CV…
This one was designed by Damage Von Rock, and posted on planetdamage.com
And lastly… my infographic, designed to blend in with my portfolio site.
Note: if you would like your infographic CV critiqued and displayed here, please email me.
Have you ever wanted to know how many people drop the F-bomb in tweets these days? No, me neither, but theres a webpage to help you find out the answer to that question.
When you first load the FBomb page, it will show a blank map. Every time someone uses the F word in a tweet, it will show the location on this map. It quickly fills up – especially in English-speaking countries. What a coincidence. Nevertheless, I still found it interesting and thought you would too.
This kind of thing could be really useful for businesses, which other keywords related to their industry or directly to their brand. It would be interesting to see how it could develop further.
A blog that starts, and continues, is only successful when the author has a passion in the subject. I love all things digital media, particularly linked to art and design. I want to immerse myself in this world and share my thoughts and findings with anyone who wants to do the same.
There is so much to be seen and used and enjoyed, not only online but in the world not yet digitalised. This can only help expand our digital world as it begins to encompass everything outside of it’s vast domain.
My journey begins here, creating this blog and making a commitment to update it whenever I find something worthy of sharing.
First up, a website still under construction, but one that really appealed to me. fullfatdesigns.co.uk (Wish I’d thought of that name first, too). Simply animated, and a brilliantly soothing design. Let’s hope the website lives up to this temporary page.
