another attempt for the info graphic

Very cool

A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward. Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite..

This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant. Make sure you read as well as listen...forward and backward.

This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old. The contest was titled "u @ 50" by AARP. This video won second place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause. So simple and yet so brilliant.

Take a minute and watch it.

Wanted to post this before I forgot.

More on dinner

Should have said, it is this Friday the 16th of April. 6:00 pm.

Dinner on Friday

Very cool place for dinner: http://robertaspizza.com/

These guys are growing their own food, and have started an internet radio station about food. Reservation - for everybody - is for 6:00. It's in Bushwick in Williamsburg. Please confirm with me - but this is a real class (perhaps more fun), where we'll prepare for the presentation to Tripping Bayer next week.

See you ALL tonight with your assignments.

i know this a little late, but i found this and it dead on for our progress posters


Important information on classes and assignments:

Here’s the scoop. Sorry to miss so many of you last Wednesday.

There will be no class this Wednesday, April 7th.
We will meet on Wednesday, April 14th. Please see assignments below.
A make-up class will be a dinner on Friday evening the 16th.

For the April 14th class.
1. Bring a full exploratory of logos for Tripping Bear, finished enough to present. Also design letterhead, envelope, business and home page of their web site using your favorite design. Please remember to add either “Design” or “Engineering” to whichever name you are using.

We have a client presentation on the 21st, so it’s time to bring designs that are fully realized. You have two weeks.

2. Also bring your information graphic posters - finished. No more sketches or “Here’s what I’m thinking of doing.” Do it.

At the dinner on the 16th, we will prepare for the client presentation, and we will discuss plans going forward for I Mother Nature. Please bring whatever thoughts you have for that project then. I'll let you know as we get closer where we'll meet for dinner

If you have questions about this, please contact me immediately. I will be available to answer and clarify, but won’t be overly amused if you show up without the assignment and tell me you didn’t understand.

Tine, thought you would appreciate the current New Yorker cover.
