Designing the whaam! style in Mapbox Studio | Mapbox

Inspired by a Roy Lichtenstein original at the Walker Art Center, I decided to design the whaam! map. In his early career, Lichtenstein worked as a comic book artist which inspired his later work. I kept my whaam! style limited to four stylistic mainstays:

Designing the Swiss Ski style in Mapbox Studio | Mapbox

Swiss maps have long been praised for their accuracy, quality, and beauty. Since 1938 the Swisstopo – Swiss Federal Office of Topography, has been producing maps for hikers, Alpinists, cyclists, planners, tourists, and explorers. I decided to design a ski map with such attention to detail using Mapbox Studio and the Mapbox Streets and Mapbox Terrain tilesets.

Why San Francisco — MartianCraft — The Syndicate — Medium

San Francisco was the first publicly released, Apple-designed typeface in over 20 years. Its name is familiar, harking back to the previous convention of naming typefaces after “world class cities” like Chicago, Geneva, Athens. London, Venice, and yes, San Francisco.

twitter/twemoji

(via)
A simple library that provides standard Unicode emoji support across all platforms.

behdad/color-emoji - Python

This project consists of the following bits and pieces: * A proposed specification to add support for embedded color image glyphs in OpenType fonts, * A tool called emoji_builder.py, to embed a set of PNG images into an existing font, * Two sets of sample PNG images for ASCII characters and sample scripts to build them into test fonts: FruityGirl and Funkster. * Scripts to build a real color emoji font out of the Open Source PhantomOpenEmoji images.

Symbolset - Multicolor fonts

Multicolor fonts are those that have full chromatic capabilities built in. Rather than using CSS, OpenType, or a layering of fonts to achieve the effect they embed color bitmaps or vector shapes.

This is an experiment in using the web audio API together with canvas to make some interesting and cool-looking visualizations. Since this is my first foray into the world of both canvas and web audio, I have slowly iterated over a number of ideas and trials which are all in the /tests folder.

Architecture of Radio

by 1 other
The infosphere* relies on an intricate network of signals, wired and wireless, that support it. We are completely surrounded by an invisible system of data cables and radio signals from access points, cell towers and overhead satellites. Our digital lives depend on these very physical systems for communication, observation and navigation.

Smart Cropping for Video: A Tool for Displaying Video at Any Aspect Ratio | POV Films Blog | POV Blog | PBS

Since the beginning of cinema, film and video have been composed with a fixed frame — theatrical films are now often presented at 1.85:1, while television is broadcast at 16:9 for high-definition or 4:3 for standard definition. But today, video is likely to be seen on device with unusual aspect ratios or multiple aspect ratios when rotated or resized — some Android tablets are 8:5 (or 5:8), the iPhone is 3:2 (or 2:3), and desktop browser windows can be of any dimension.

The high-tech cop of the future is here today

In November 2015, a video was released to the public showing 17-year-old Laquan McDonald— a black kid who went to school in Chicago’s South Side—being shot 16 times in less than 15 seconds by Jason Van Dyke, a white officer with the Chicago Police Department. Protests erupted around the country, and to this day, protests continue in Chicago. Not only was this an example of an officer brazenly ignoring protocol and killing another human being with wanton disregard for the law, it was also evidence of an apparent cover-up: McDonald was killed in October 2014, and it took at least one lawsuit and 13 months for the city to hand over the video—seemingly an inherently public record—to journalists and lawyers working the case.

Finding the Right Color Palettes for Data Visualizations — Graphiq Engineering — Medium

Audio Visualization with Web Audio, Canvas and the Soundcloud API

If you don’t already know, Soundcloud is sort of like YouTube, but for audio rather than video. It provides a rich API for building apps that use its audio streams, so I decided to use it as the source for my visualization (note that you’ll need to register your app to use the Soundcloud API – it’s free and straightforward to do).
