I came across this video a few days ago and had a chance to watch it in it’s entirety this weekend. Bret Victor demonstrates a very intriguing software tool for drawing dynamic visualizations – creating data-driven visualizations, like D3, but via direct manipulation of the picture itself, like Illustrator. Recorded at the Stanford HCI seminar [...]

PBS just published a video about data visualization. Personally, I think they did a decent job representing the spectrum of style of data visualizations and infographics, with Edward Tufte representing the ultra conservative right wing side of the debate and Josh Smith of Hyperakt and Jer Thorp of Office for Creative Research representing the artistic-focused, [...]
There’s been a debate in the visualization community for decades between those who favor a rational, scientific approach to the profession, emphasizing functionality, and those who consider themselves “artists,” placing emphasis on emotion and aesthetics. I’ve followed this debate for years now and have always thought it would be a good idea to document the [...]
I realized I wanted to have a page here on this site that’s just a gallery of sketchnotes, sketches and doodles that I’ve created. So, here’s the new Sketchnotes and Sketches gallery page – just stuff from the last few months.
Just came across this nice little gem via a tweet from @rohdesign, a fun, animated short stop-motion explanation video by Ben Barrett-Forrest that explains the history of typography. And, speaking of both type and Mike Rohde, check out Mike’s latest podcast about drawing type in sketchnotes.
In last week’s Visual Thinking Hub’s weekly visual call, Sacha Chua brought up the idea of capturing the process of creating an animated video. I hadn’t thought of doing a time lapse screen captures of making videos but it’s something I’ll keep in mind for future videos. I do however capture the various stages of [...]
I’ve recently become fascinated with the world of digital health – the intersection of health & medicine with technology. There’s a digital health revolution under way, exemplified by the proliferation of sensors, medical devices, and mobile smartphone/iPad apps. One particular development grabbed my attention about a week ago and I thought it needed a visual [...]
In a previous post on dialogue mapping I talked about featuring some of the less-well-known, but useful visual thinking disciplines. Continuing that thread, today’s feature is on causal mapping. What is Causal Mapping? A causal map is a type of concept map in which the links between nodes represent causality or influence. Causal mapping is [...]
A little visual reminder for myself to take a break from working and thinking about work. Sometimes I have to remind myself that getting away from the computer and giving my brain a break is the best thing to improve creativity and productivity.
I got myself an iPad a few months ago but until recently hadn’t started sketching on it much. I tried the free app Jot! Free using just my finger for a stylus and didn’t like the results. But a couple of weeks ago I bought the Adobe Ideas app and a Targus stylus and, though [...]
