Bit of a short one this week due to being out last week

An open letter to design students everywhere

“With structure comes freedom. And freedom, let’s not forget, is what education is all about. It is a great time to be a student. Go out and make great things, things that help us, inform us, enlighten and change and impact the world in millions of meaningful and glorious ways. Your education will not end the day you graduate: on the contrary, what you’re doing is learning how to learn, and how to think, and how to visualize the ideas that percolate in your brain. So here’s what you do: never stop thinking. Never stop asking questions. Never, never stop reading, looking, imagining what else can be done. And don’t be afraid to start small. You’ll get there, eventually. And when you do? Send somebody a thank you note.”

A look at good information graphics there are many more related to information visualization but its always interesting to get different views.

How to create and command your visitors attention , great examples  and finally, overall principles, this was written in 2005 but its great to revisit, also many great links mentioned at the bottom of the post.

Will probably do 1 or 2 more design digests then will move away from weekly to something a little more random.
