How Movie Posters Have Changed In The Last 98 Years [Infographic] It seems silly when Pantone announces the new color of the year, but their basic premise is correct: Our tastes in colors change over time. Consider the green refrigerators and yellow countertops of the 1970s vs the stainless steel appliances of today. Be it in paints, inks, fabrics or linoleums, color sink into our collective consciousness. Vijay Pandurangan was interested to see how colors played out in one of society’s most time-honored advertising traditions, the movie poster. Click to enlarge. What he generated was a fascinating timeline, a way to quickly scan the trends of Hollywood marketing in terms of nothing but color. Pandurangan points out several potential reasons for this shift, like that the hand painted posters of yore featured unrealistically orange skin tones, balanced by the more balanced flesh tones of photography. If you like the infographic, be sure to check out the interactive version on Pandurangan’s page. See it here. [Hat tip: boingboing]

How to Be an Educated Consumer of Infographics: David Byrne on the Art-Science of Visual Storytelling As an appreciator of the art of visual storytelling by way of good information graphics — an art especially endangered in this golden age of bad infographics served as linkbait — I was thrilled and honored to be on the advisory “Brain Trust” for a project by Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist, New Yorker writer, and Scientific American neuroscience blog editor Gareth Cook, who has set out to highlight the very best infographics produced each year, online and off. (Disclaimer for the naturally cynical: No money changed hands.) The Best American Infographics 2013 (public library) is now out, featuring the finest examples from the past year — spanning everything from happiness to sports to space to gender politics, and including a contribution by friend-of-Brain Pickings Wendy MacNaughton — with an introduction by none other than David Byrne.

Create a map | BatchGeo Infographics for Educators We live in a world of quick consumption, bite-size morsels of information, and visualizations of just about everything. All of this has become boiled down into the uber-popular infographic. They pop up from time to time on Edudemic and I often have a tough time determining if I should actually run versus another. I’ve been saving up all of my favorite infographics for a post just like this one. An all-in-one no-extra-clicking-necessary post where you can scroll for miles and have a never-ending stream of visualized goodness. I picked each infographic based on the topic, breadth of information, and overall worth.
