For this week’s assignment in my Visual Communications class, each student was asked to design three expressive words considering guidelines in typography. In addition, each student was asked to create six examples of their name choosing font preferences with at least one example of serif, san serif, decorative and script.
Examples of Bad Signage
Is this guy really running for president? If he is, I don’t think this ad would help him get the votes he would need to win. Nevertheless, the design of the poster made me want to visit his web site. I think this advertisement is a clever way to get someone’s attention, but in the end of the day, I just don’t get what Tone Tank is trying to say.
My direction for my first assignment in my Interactive Screens & Cinematic Objects class was to identify the different parts of my face in a non-literal sense. I wanted to break apart my face into a multitude of sections and highlight those areas that would typically go unnoticed in a realistic sketch. In a geographical map, it is it’s structure and design that orients the viewer’s understanding of a specific territory. Unpopular and small populated areas in geographic maps are invisible to the viewer. In this personal map, I wanted to highlight those areas on my face that I never draw my attention to.
NIME Week 1 Showcase: Marie Chouinard
Marie Chouinard’s Cantique No. 3 is an interactive event that increases the responsibility of the user as both the controller and artist of the presentation. The juxtaposition of outrageous comedy, classic facial expressions and even techno music make this eccentric work so intriguing to me.

Free Hockey Sound Effects!
All hockey sound effects were recorded and processed by Jason Safir.
These are some hockey sounds effects I recorded at Chelsea Piers Sky Rink in New York City last weekend for a hockey documentary that I am currently producing. All hockey sounds are rendered in high quality 320 kbps MP3 format. Special thanks to Chelsea Piers for allowing me to go on the ice and capture these hockey sounds. You may download and use them for free in any way you choose! Right mouse click on a sound effect link and select “Save Link As..” to download rather than preview.

A Simple Cup
Visualizing the impact a simple cup can have on our environment
According to sustainabilityissexy.com, over 6.5 million trees are consumed each year to produce the 16 billion disposable coffee cups that are being thrown away out into landfills. For about every 50,000 paper coffee cups produced, a tree is destroyed. Read more »
Data Visualizations from the Museum of Natural History
Last week I visited the Museum of Natural History in New York City and was amazed with all the data visualizations they put together for their displays. Ever since my visit to the museum, I have become addicted to designing my own data visualizations for different types of data sets.
