Web designers -v- Web Programmers

In today's ever-evolving internet world, among the many changes that take place on a daily basis are job titles.  A couple of decades ago if someone said their job title was "Programmer" we immediately thought of them as really smart/really shy people.  If someone said they were a "Designer", we would ask for more details. What type of designer? Clothes? Auto? Home?  Fast forward to today, and corporations are churning out titles as fast as they can.  In the internet world, two titles stand out: Web Programmer and Web Designer.  By looking at the titles can you tell them apart?  Well, thanks to the artsy types who have time on their hands, we now have a way to visualize the difference between these two important positions. HR take notice.  http://sixrevisions.com/infographs/web-designers-vs-web-developers/.  

Enjoy!

Developing States

It is no surprise that certain parts of the country are more, shall we say, economically better off than other parts.  Click the "Developing States" tag below and look at the interactive map depicting economic development in the US.  Should economic development policies be influenced by such disparity?

Animated Visualization of Volunteer Efforts

In previous posts I have shown static pictures depicting all sorts of information. These pictures are the work of artsy folks who certainly have a handle on how to communicate information in a way we can all understand. This time, rather than a static picture, we break from the ordinary. This animated viz by Design Language News is simple and fun and, well...enjoy it.

Find the hidden iPad

This is a fun poster about spotting a hidden iPad.  Like I mentioned in a previous post: 
no all infographics need to be serious.
