My Life in Infographics

On 11, Dec 2012 | No Comments | In Design, Inspiration, Thoughts | By Zoë

I’m totally feeling this visual representation of my life in info design by Vizify. THIS is why I use social meeting prolifically. I learn about myself. I share what I want to share but it’s more than telling other people when I go to the zoo, it’s my version of a journal.

Just discovered this awesome photographer, Kevin Russ.

He takes stunning pictures of nature, animals and every-day life, all in Instagram.

I love how simple he is with his site and his images. Nothing distracting, just the pictures. What a nice reminder.

The creative community has mixed views about Instagram, but the impact it has on ‘non-creatives’ (or even non-photographers by trade) becoming aware of the art and beauty in their daily lives is undeniable.
