Gmail: 9 years and counting

Gmail: 9 years and counting

This April marks Gmail’s 9th birthday, and as year ten gets underway, it’s a good opportunity to look at how much has changed: the curse of the Bambino was broken, Martin Scorsese finally won an Oscar, and we stopped referencing Xena the Warrior Princess in our blogposts. And during that time, Gmail—and online communication as a whole—evolved too.

So much of that evolution is a result of your feedback. In fact, Gmail was inspired by one user’s feedback that she was tired of struggling to find emails buried deep in her inbox. So we built a new email that leveraged the power of Google Search. You told us you were tired of spam, so we set to tackling that, and today your feedback makes it possible for Gmail to filter out well over 99% of incoming spam. You also said that you needed tools to deal with information overload, so we introduced Priority Inbox to help you manage your email (and we’re still exploring new ways to it even easier).

How Corporate Logos Evolve

For today’s infographic, we have a look at the changes of various corporate companies over the years. No, it’s not about their trends of success or the quality of their products. This infographic is about what most people subconsciously relate to a company image: The Logo. You could have the worst or the best company or commercial service in the world, but if you don’t have a recognizable and simple logo, you don’t stand a chance with identifying with the consumer market. What a logo creates is something that people don’t really think about; a face to go along with a name. It creates the idea of craftsmanship and identity in a post-industrial world. It’s interesting to notice how the late 19th/ early 20th century logos used to be much more detailed and with a sense of personality. Visual modernism and minimalism obviously became more prominent as the years have passed, but in almost all of these logos I prefer the first images the most (I do like the new Pepsi logo for some reason though). It’s funny how design trends for well-established companies seem to get lamer as the years go on. I guess the sense of personality slowly wears down as their respective progenitors leave or pass away. Meh, food for thought. http://infografiks.in/s/bf Source: How Corporate Logos Evolve Infographic | Daily Infographic

How many cups is a pint or a quart or a gallon? How many teaspoons is each? When you're cooking and have to quickly convert kitchen measurements, a graphic chart like this is a great help. Sometimes you just don't have the right measuring tool for the recipe you're using. This "Common Cook's How-Many Guide to Kitchen Conversions" from graphic designer Shannon Lattin (who brought us an essential vitamins reference guide) shows you what to do for those quick conversions. At first glance, it probably seems more confusing than a simple liquid conversion chart. But when you look at it more closely and if you print it out for posting on your kitchen wall, it's pretty ingenious. The lines connect each measurement to their equivalent. (Note the + sign indicates an added measure to add. And, alas, there are no ounces here.) Source: Convert Measurements in the Kitchen with This Handy Infographic
