Finally got this beautiful chart from last weekend’s Sunday Times scanned (thanks, Laura!). It struck me as a gorgeous and complex way to display information that could have otherwise been illustrated in a couple boring pie charts or bar graphs, despite looking a little like a river of poo. It’s somewhat hard to read here, but it shows the 2007 box office earnings and time in theaters of the big blockbusters and smaller-release films, pointing to Oscar nominations (notice how they’re almost always in the white). You can also see a streamlined version of it here as an interactive chart that extends back to 1986.
cool stuff abounds. find your way on, off and around the gridI'm a writer and wide-eyed wanderer, culturemonger and experience collector. Born in New York and raised in Colorado, I've also lived in Sydney, France, Martinique and spent various random weeks and months exploring the spaces between. Possibly as a result, I'm not happy unless I'm on a plane twice a month going somewhere to discover something cool. This is where I'll attempt to collect and share some of the things I see in travel, design, retail, music, film, web, food, style. (I admit, focus has never been my strongsuit.) Day jobs have included years at big city branding shops, little town magazines and a stint heading up marketing for an alternative law firm's San Francisco office. I still have a foot in that pretty little city but my heart resides in Manhattan.
My other gigI'm also editrix-in-chief of TheDistillery, a marketing blog focused on media, design, and brands. It's a place where a bunch of stuff goes in and only the good stuff comes out. Drink up. DistilleryMedia.com.
