Working with D3.js and Canvas: When and How - Bocoup
We can create charts quickly when working with D3.js and standard DOM elements, but that comes with a key limitation: the number of nodes we can render is fairly small. Have you ever tried to render a scatterplot with 1000+ circles in SVG? If you have, then you’ve probably seen your browser crumble under the weight of its own DOM.

The State of Information Visualization, 2014
2013 was another exciting year for visualization. Between many new developments in data storytelling, a new wave of news graphics, new visualization blogs, better automated infographics, and visuals designed to hit you hard, it is difficult to decide what was most important. Here is a look back, and some ideas about where we’re going.

Why Should Engineers and Scientists Be Worried About Color?
At the core of good science and engineering is the careful and respectful treatment of data. We calibrate our instruments, scrutinize the algorithms we use to process the data, and study the behavior of the models we use to interpret the data or simulate the phenomena we may be observing. Surprisingly, this careful treatment of data often breaks down when we visualize our data.

Design Principles for News Apps & Graphics - ProPublica
While the tools and techniques to present large datasets in graphics and news apps may differ from project to project, the basic design principles stay pretty much the same. Many of these principles should seem pretty familiar – even if you’ve never studied design formally, you probably know some of them instinctively. Let’s name them, explain why they work and see how other designers, especially news designers, use them. Once you recognize the concepts, you’ll become more conscious of when and how to use them in your own projects.

Disciplinarities: intra, cross, multi, inter, trans | ARJ
For some papers I am currently working on, I have taken up my interest in definitions of different types of disciplinarities (see blog post from a couple of years ago). Since that time I think the talking about the need for working interdisciplinary has only increased, but still there seem to be no real incentives for actually making it possible to work truly interdisciplinary. This holds true when working within an academic setting, and it is even more difficult when trying to bridge academic and artistic disciplines.

totalcontent - the blog.: new work – Experian charities brochure.
A dinky printed brochure and e-flier for the global information services company Experian. Conceived, designed and illustrated by the good folk at Nottingham-based branding studio Cubic, this called for a softer approach, explaining the benefits of efficient data management to charity fundraisers. ‘Eight ways to grow your charity’ was based around the central conceit of horticulture and husbandry, using friendly illustration and tone of voice to convey a series of helpful tips. totalcontent provided all the words, achieving a balance between useful information and easy-going warmth, and digging deep for a succession of suitable gardening metaphors.

F.H.K. Henrion / Designers Journal
This week, Martin Maher talks F.H.K. Henrion (1914-1990) – a true giant of British graphic design. During a long and eventful career Henrion was not only president of the most prestigious of design organisations (AGI), he also designed some of the most powerful social posters of World War II as well as single-handedly pioneering the concept of corporate identity programs. With accolades like these, as well as many more, one would think Henrion would be a household name within our own industry, but sadly it seems this is not the case. Born Frederick Henry Kay Henrion in Nuremberg, Germany on 18 April 1914, this highly talented, award-winning designer was granted his British nationality in 1946. He trained as a textile designer in Paris and he worked under Paul Colin in Paris and London from 1936 to 1939. It was whilst in Paris that he came across the works of Cassandre, the Surrealists and the Modernist movement.

Album Covers: Noise Music — The New Graphic
Some of my favorite album covers come from the noise genre. I’m not sure why—I’m not that interested in the aesthetic on its own—maybe there’s something of the sublime in the overload of sensation, maybe it’s the palette-cleansing aspect. Whichever, I like a lot of the art & design it has inspired.

The History of the Modern Graphics Processor - TechSpot
The evolution of the modern graphics processor begins with the introduction of the first 3D add-in cards in 1995, followed by the widespread adoption of the 32-bit operating systems and the affordable personal computer.

The graphics industry that existed before that largely consisted of a more prosaic 2D, non-PC architecture, with graphics boards better known by their chip’s alphanumeric naming conventions and their huge price tags. 3D gaming and virtualization PC graphics eventually coalesced from sources as diverse as arcade and console gaming, military, robotics and space simulators, as well as medical imaging.

P! - Karel Martens: Selected Letterpress Works - Karel Martens: Selected Letterpress Works
When Karel Martens began studying art in Holland in the late 1950s, “graphic design” did not even exist as its own course of study. Today he is widely recognized as one of the most important practitioners of that very discipline, with an esteemed client list that includes major publishers, architects, and institutions. His accolades include the H.N. Werkman Prize (1993) for the design of the architectural journal Oase, the Dr A.H. Heineken Prize for Art (1996), the Gold Medal at the Leipzig Book Fair (1998), and numerous other distinctions. Martens has taught at the Yale School of Art, Jan van Eyck Academie, and co-founded Werkplaats Typografie in 1997. The below selection of Martens’ monoprints includes rare works from the 1950s and 60s. They engage with the technology of letterpress, deliberately misusing the media to create unique prints. Neither commissioned design objects nor autonomous artworks, Martens’ letterpress experiments exist as unique fragments of an ongoing visual process.

Dushanbe Scrapbook - a set on Flickr
In Oct 2010 while on a research trip in Tajikistan I came across a curious scrapbook of Soviet-era graphics in a junk-shop in the capital city Dushanbe. Within it were pages with collaged panels containing imagery ranging from depictions of cosmonauts, political figures, musical iconography and political illustrations in Constructivist and Suprematist styles.
