Are you an art or design student newly enrolled in a typography course? This “student” is younger than you by, oh, about 16 years or more! Designer Dad Teaches His Two-Year Old Daughter About Typography With Edible ABCs is from my archive of stuff I’ve been planning to share but haven’t quite had the time (I have twins now who are soon going to be learning typography with edible type themselves, now that I’ve learned from this designer daddy). Looking for a practice homework assignment? Try making a few letters from your favorite foods.

ReBlog: Brain Pickings’ Dogs of NYC: An Interactive Watercolor Map of the City’s Canine Caucus

I’m currently enrolled in Alberto Cairo’s MOOC class, Introduction to Data Visualization and Infographics, offered through the Knight Foundation and The University of Texas. Most of the graphics and visualizations that we discuss and review in class are serious, poignant, and scientifically sound. What interests me more are the whimsical and perhaps slightly less statistically important visualizations often created by artists and amateurs. This interactive watercolor map, the Dogs of NYC was created by the “data team” at WNYC (John Keefe, Stephen Reader, Steven Melendez and Louis Ma). It is pure fun. The numbers are probably accurate, too. But more importantly, the subject is at once silly and interesting.

Now I know which neighborhood to avoid if I don’t want to have a run in with a pit bull!
