Data made beautiful
More and more news and information sources are turning to infographics to display complex data in a simple, visual way. Infographics have become one of the most ‘dugg’ types of content on Digg.com, meaning people don’t just want to get information this way, they want to share it. This infographic from engadget.com displays a recap of the days stories by time and level of interest based on comments.
Why it matters
Audiences have access to more information than ever, but they need tools to help them sort through it. How can brands display information in a beautifully simple way, that readers will understand and be inspired to share?
“True Blood”, “Twilight”, “The Vampire Diaries”, “BLOOD: The Last Vampire”, “Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant” - audiences in the U.S. can’t get enough of the vampire genre right now.

Project Parties is a new Chicago web-based service that helps you create the perfect night out with your friends. The idea was conceived (appropriately) by two Chi-town nightlife vets on the back of a napkin. Potential revellers can enter criteria from neighborhood, venue type, and type of dress right down to specific entertainment options - like whether they have pinball machine. Participating venues list package deals that can be booked directly through the site.
