Build a Better Sandwich

This is a tasty new interactive from the NYtimes.  The animations on the sandwiches are pretty cool and make me very hungry.     This latest NY Times piece is fairly similar to another older piece  by http://www.cheeseandburger.com/.  Wonder if they took any inspiration from that?

Interactive – Species in Pieces

It’s not often you come across an interactive content project as beautiful as this one.  This is Species in Pieces.  30 endangered species represented by 30 different pieces.  The project is the work of http://www.bryanjamesdesign.co.uk/ and is absolutely amazing in my opinion.  For me, this has all the elements of a very shareable interactive content piece.  This […]

YouGov Profiler

This is a great piece of interactive content I found via Twitter from YouGov.co.uk.  You simply enter a “Brand, Person or Thing” and after some ‘calculations’ it will work out the profile or personality of the person using YouGov data. So being the geek I am, I like to try and push these kind of content […]
