[infographie] Ukraine : la démocratie en dictature ! L’Ukraine, un bien beau pays qui est dans l’actualité en ce moment pour de bien tristes raisons… Malgré les vaillants efforts de l’opposition en Ukraine, le Parlement ukrainien a adopté une loi brutale qui dirige le pays en plein dans la dictature. Sont interdits en vertu de la nouvelle loi (sous peine d’emprisonnement) de conduire des voitures dans des colonnes qui dépassent cinq véhicules longs, de mettre en place un système sonore (émission ou réception) non déclaré, les « perturbations de masse » sont passibles de 10 à 15 ans d’emprisonnement, des informations sont collectés sur la police ou les juges, j’en passe… (l’image en grand format) Bref, comme souvent je vous invite à rester vigilant autant que possible sur vos droits, vos libertés et à rester informés tout en informant… et à militez avec vos propres moyens, si vous le pouvez! source Êtes-vous adepte du multitasking ? (voir l’image en grand) Et vous, êtes-vous « multitâche » ?

Sites web au look rétro et vintage | Design Retro Le style rétro et vintage est un style bien présent dans le design graphique autant que sur le web. Bien qu’utilisé depuis déjà quelques années, ce style est toujours très d’actualité dans les dernières tendances web et continue d’évoluer grâce à l’utilisation des textures, des typographies et des couleurs. Voici une liste de sites web au look rétro et vintage qui sauront vous inspirer dans ce style de création très agréable à parcourir.

It is also becoming an increasingly prevalent design tool. Code is both a new ‘material’ that artists can use and an inspiration for their subject matter. Programmers, who work with code to create computer programmes, are a recent addition to the creative arts community. One of the most significant developments within digital design is the concept of ‘open source’.

The Discipline of Content Strategy We, the people who make websites, have been talking for fifteen years about user experience, information architecture, content management systems, coding, metadata, visual design, user research, and all the other disciplines that facilitate our users’ abilities to find and consume content. Article Continues Below Weirdly, though, we haven’t been talking about the meat of the matter. We haven’t been talking about the content itself. Yeah, yeah. But who among us is asking the scary, important questions about content, such as “What’s the point?” As a community, we’re rather quiet on the matter of content. Do you think it’s a coincidence, then, that web content is, for the most part, crap? Dealing with content is messy. And yet, the web is content. And that’s where content strategy comes in. What is Content Strategy? Content strategy plans for the creation, publication, and governance of useful, usable content. At its best, a content strategy defines: But wait…there’s more#section3 BUT.

Dynamic Diagrams' take on the world of visual explanation, information architecture, design, and technology Morten Riis: Dessins sonores numériques (Chronique) “Digital Sound Drawings”, by danish composer Morten Riis, is a collection of 6 pieces composed through the drawing of images and their direct conversion into sound. By literally drawing sounds, Morten Riis presents us carefully hand-crafted pieces that are in reality audiovisual creations, due to the great care that was put on composing not only the sound but also the visual appearance of their waveforms. This release is distributed as 24 bit 44.1 KHz AIFF files, and the listener is encouraged to use a wave editor when listening to the tracks, watching the waveforms as they play. In the recent years the tendency in music software has been to facilitate usage, including more and more pre-made presets and sound banks to work from. Consequently, more and more of the actual sound creation has shifted from the composers’ hand to the music software programmers’. That’s why I chose to draw my sound material in an image editor.

Teach Yourself Graphic Design: A Self-Study Course Outline Fortunately, it isn’t required to go to design school in order to be a graphic designer. A good foundation in graphic design history, theory, and practical application will help you hit the ground running. There are plenty of resources available in which you can learn graphic design on your own. If you would like to learn graphic design from the ground up, through self directed study, then this article lists some great resources that will get you started with your design education. 1. There are a few graphic design principles that effect every project you’ll create. Shape, Spacing, and Rhythm I remember first learning these basic design principles , and they seamed so foreign at first. The Principles of Design by Joshua David McClurg-Genevese What is Graphic Design? Color, Texture, and Imagery Understanding the basics of color theory is important and getting a feel for how to work with colors.

Wisdom of small crowds, part 3: another worker visualization | The CrowdFlower Blog This is a follow-up to the previous post on individual workloads and rates. Here are the submission times and durations for every worker on the same graph. Each worker is one horizontal line. The particular data set isn't the same as in the previous post, but was for a similar task and exhibits a similar structure. This view makes the parallelism of AMT apparent. [ This article is part of a series, Wisdom of Small Crowds, on crowdsourcing methodology. ] Drops Of Colored Liquid Are The Controllers In audible color audible color from Momo Miyazaki on Vimeo. Controlling music just gets simpler and simpler. If you thought moving shapes or waving your hand in the air to manipulate sound was a revolution, imagine making music using tiny drops of color-coded liquid. Copenhagen-based designers Momo Miyazaki and Hideaki Matsui created audible color, an audio-visual instrument that uses simple physical gestures for an intuitive interaction between sounds and colors. The basic concept behind the project is that three base colors (red, green, and blue) correspond to three different notes (A, D, and F). When these base colors combine to make purple, teal, and brown, new notes (C, E, and G) are generated. [via SHOCKLEE] @abilaurel
