I am a big fan of infographics (in a nutshell, infographics are images that illustrate a set of data). There’s something to be said about dissecting data down to something so pretty to illustrate a point – it’s far sexier than having rows and columns of spreadsheets staring back at you, that’s for sure.
One such artist is Jude Buffum who is currently teaching and freelancing in Philadelphia. He’s a pixel pusher who is doing great stuff that reminds me of VGA games back in 1980 (Steve Kraan’s work have the same effect on me). Other than unsmoothened pixels, his other forte is infographics, and it’s what attracts me most.
He has some prints for sale that are full of pixellated goodness, and if you’re a nerd like me, you’ll want to check it out over here.
