How a QR Code Could Save Your Life

The QR code has been a popular punching bag for the nonplussed tech press, but Mercedes-Benz has figured out a way to not only make the over-endowed barcode useful, but life-saving. The ADAC — or the Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club — is Germany’s version of the AAA. And they require every automaker to provide a “rescue sheet” in vehicles sold in Germany. The sheet provides first responders with information about the placement and volatility of everything from fuel lines to airbags, pressurized cylinders, and the high-voltage cables fitted to hybrids. This gives paramedics, police, and firefighters a map of the vehicle so they don’t cut through something that goes “boom.” How a QR Code Could Save Your Life | Autopia | Wired.com Rights to all content (text, images, videos etc.) with post source.

How Corporate Logos Evolve

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

A Brief Introduction to Typography

Typography is a key element of any graphic design. I would say that is the element. Can be designed using only good and properly typography. You do not need nothing else, the rest usually straw. However, outside the realm of graphic design, is a known issue and is not given the importance (hence the designers there, right?). Improper use of fonts, use fonts “prohibited” use default fonts, make people’s eyes bleed that gives minimal importance, and it does not take an expert to avoid these common mistakes. Any computer contains hundreds of pre-installed fonts to choose from and there are dozens of websites with thousands of free fonts, just some minimal knowledge and aesthetic taste.
