Mapping Manhattan with Flickr and Twitter



Eric Fischer created these amazing maps of cities around the world using geotagged photos from Flickr and geotagged tweets from Twitter. The red dots represent Flickr use and the blue dots represent Twitter. I love how much these maps communicate without the aid of labels. Central park, for example, is clearly defined by the frequency of Flickr uploads.

Pursuing Dreams

It's been quiet here for a little while. This last week I had the pleasure of taking an intensive poster design class with James Victore. The class challenged much of what I've known and experienced as a practicing graphic designer, and for that I am thankful. Prior to taking the class I drew this sketch about pursuing dreams for VERBOSE .



After the week spent soaking in work and being pushed to break conventions, I find that this sketch has a different meaning for me, but I thought I'd share it all the same.
