    I still using both actually. I think Chrome's responsive and mobile views/tools are nicer than Firefox, and since I have taken to using Brackets text editor for doing a lot of my development work, I end...

    I would recommend drawing it by hand, scanning in and tracing it if you're looking to create something that actually looks like a neural network. There's no setting in Illustrator that's going to take...

    I think this is a case of having settled too early in the design process. I do like the idea - breathing life into old designs. I think that has legs. But I don't love the execution particularly, specifically...

  • information graphic quick brief opinions

    hi all i just wanted to add something quickly, we had a project to do to show how we get from home to college in a information graphic style, only had about a week to do it and its due monday, this is my attempt.

    i respect non of you will know the area etc but i just wanted to do it in a crazy map style, pretty accurate mind you...going to print it as a a2 poster

    its attached as full scale but im not sure if it will be scaled down when attaching

    thanks

    ps
    i have just previewed the post and it looks like its been scaled right down, i thought you might be able to click it and it opened full scale. if you look hard enough you can see a red line from my house to college, i will probably add a bit of typo saying follow the little red line or something

    thanks again

            Okayyy, how do you get to college???

            Maybe some different color to show a path coming from the main roads, Tube, etc..

            Okayyy after a second long look I found it. A poster should be instantly readable (remember, its a P-O-S-T-E-R, to be seen from a somewhat a distance).

              Put how to get there on one side on how to get back on the other.

                You've obviously put a huge amount of effort into this. And that is appreciated. The graphics are nice, I like how you extended roads to be text, it's all very nice.

                But, you getting to college and back, that's not information for the masses. Just information for you. Nobody else really needs that information.

                But you have a map now, so you can include tains, trams, busses, taxis, etc.

                Make your college the central point. Have everything converge on that.


                I mean it though, kudos on the effort into the graphics, I really like it, but as an infographic it's not really appealing at the moment. It's good but it needs refinement and it needs to give the public the information where the college is. Because at the moment not too many people really mind how you get to college but would like to know how they could get there.

                  finally some good bordering on harsh crits i know this forum can supply, the how i get to college section isn't meant to be obvious as its supposed to look like roads on a map looking down but noted and i see i have went a bit overboard here, i was on about hour 5 when i got to that section, will defo look at it again.........

                  thanks and any other pointers would be welcome

                    hi tyson, thanks... the further i went with it the more i found i could add but again i have to remember what is being asked for this, sorry i dont think i stated it....i believe i have went a little overboard here as its meant to be a intro project into info grapichs - a simple how do you get to college in the morning...i mean my own personal route each day, everyone is doing there own ideas and routes etc....i found as i went on with it i wanted to do exactly like your suggesting though.

                    im just wondering without doing to much re-working if there is a better way to show my route rather than a red line or something of the likes. a fresh look at it tomorrow should help but thanks again your comments have helped, more welcome again and sorry but im typing in the dark haha

                      Well to be honest after I posted I thought perhaps it was just about how you got to college. And then I was going to suggest that you include things like,



                      Trains
                      Trams
                      Taxis
                      Busses
                      Car
                      Bicycle
                      Hand Gliders
                      water/boat/Jet Skis
                      Airports

                      and many other modes of transport.


                      Like a tall building near your college you could hand glide from or a short walk to the river and a boat.


                      That would be more information into a graphic and demonstate your ability to show different information.

                      It's a good start though.

                      To be honest I can't even see the route you're taking in the map you've posted.

                          I love the American Office, have you seen the original British Office with Ricky Gervais. I'm a huge fan of his. Steve Carelll is amazing in the American Office btw. I love watching it. Park Whoar episode was hysterical.

                              a bigger picture



                              just going to do a little work on this but just thought i would post via photobucket so you can get a bigger image - still not full size but its slightly better and you can (probably) see the red line direction now

                              thanks again for all your comments
