Inspiration + Research


I came across this drawing by architect by Josef Frank. It is a concept for a Town for 2000 Families, c. 1950. I've been really digging aerial perspectives lately, and I really like how this one is slightly forward to give the buildings some definition (as opposed to straight down).

Some other illustrations I've found to be interesting thinking about this project:



I also have been looking more at websites. Here are a few that especially caught my eye as being helpful. I've even been peeking at code a bit to see how they organized them.

Remember Spook

This is way more intensive than I could ever dream of building, but it is so beautiful. I really loved the inclusion of sound as well -- it made it an experience. The interactions are stunning too.

Junko's Story: Surviving Hiroshima

One thing I really like about this site is how it includes illustration and photography well. The infographics are also illustrated in way that pulls all the information together into a cohesive visual language -- which really aids the storytelling.

And of course, news always does longform the best. Really simple structure that seems logical and intuitive. This page had a nice interjection of graphics, video, and titles that flowed naturally. The sidebar on the left has a progress indicator that is subtle but really nice. 

Google Earth

I also started exploring Google Earth a little to see what I could spy from up there. I snagged this photo from the golf course.
