Beautiful Beatles prints by Oliver Barrett

17 Sep

Designer and illustrator Oliver Barrett has created these four posters for the Charting The Beatles project. The site of the project features some very interesting and complex information graphics that are really worth checking (here), but I was drawn to the simplicity and beautiful colors of Barrett’s prints. The delicate and very well crafted illustrations show the instruments that each band member played. And I really appreciated the fact that he illustrated some lesser known, not exactly iconic, images of the Fab Four.

“These four illustrations are for the Charting the Beatles project. I chose to create complex portraits of each member from my favorite era of their careers. In addition to the portraits, I depicted each member’s array (or lack of in Ringo’s case) of instruments through vector silhouettes.”

Stuxnet: Anatomy of a Computer Virus

3 Jul

Impressive animation and extremely beautiful designs in this infographic-driven video about the computer virus Stuxnet, directed by Patrick Clair. Not only does the animation look great and flow nicely, it also delivers information about a complex virus very effectively. You’ll want to watch this more than once!

“An infographic dissecting the nature and ramifications of Stuxnet, the first weapon made entirely out of code. This was produced for Australian TV program HungryBeast on Australia’s ABC1”
