Explore museums and great works of art in the Google Art Project One of the things I love about working at Google is that you can come up with an idea one day and the next day start getting to work to make it a reality. That's what happened with the Art Project—a new tool we're announcing today which puts more than 1,000 works of art at your fingertips, in extraordinary detail. It started when a small group of us who were passionate about art got together to think about how we might use our technology to help museums make their art more accessible—not just to regular museum-goers or those fortunate to have great galleries on their doorsteps, but to a whole new set of people who might otherwise never get to see the real thing up close. We're also lucky here to have access to technology like Picasa and App Engine and to have colleagues who love a challenge—like building brand-new technology to enable Street View to go indoors!
Using Piktochart: a marketing technology review A friend alerted me to Piktochart, the online Infographics creator so I thought I’d give it a try. Here’s my first impression after making two infographics, the one you see above (which took about 7 minutes) and a spoof Content Marketing Strategy infographic I cranked out last week and shared on Pinterest (yes, it did get shared as a real infographic). What is Piktochart? It’s a quick and easy way for non-designers to create and share infographics. Why would you use it? How does it work? You can then change the ‘Mood’ using pre-made colour palettes and start editing the text, icons and images using pretty simple drag & drop editing tools. You can then export your work as a PNG file, as raw data or as HTML (Premium only). Pros Very easy for non-designers to get something basic createdFast & free Cons Alternatives Use a proper designer – you can’t beat a talented designer (like our own Jim, Luke, Joel and Mel for instance) for making your ideas come to life.
