Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

An information graphic in its simplest form is a visual interpretation of data. Though an incredibly useful form of data presentation, infographics have traditionally been an underwhelming sector of the design world.

That being said, there are some brilliant designers out there who have turned this typically dull form of data visualization into beautiful and creative works of art.

In appreciation of those designers who find beauty in data, I’ve collected 40 beautiful infographic designs that inspire me. Hopefully they will inspire you, too!

45 Beautifully Designed Book Covers

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

I would imagine that nobody hates the expression don’t judge a book by its cover more than an actual book cover designer. Obviously, the metaphor isn’t really about books – but still, that’s gotta sting a little.

Let’s face it, if people didn’t actually “judge books by their covers”, there would be a lot of graphic designers out of a job. The need for company branding, attractive packaging or promotional material of any kind would be non-existent; thus leaving the lowly graphic designer nothing short of obsolete.

So in the spirit of judging books by their covers, I’ve compiled a list of 45 beautifully designed book covers that I find inspiring. Did I miss any that inspire you?

25 Imaginative Illustrations Inspired By Film

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

For the most part, being both a film geek and design geek are two completely separate interests of mine that rarely coexist.  Occasionally I’ll be enticed by a great poster design, or appreciate the font choice in a title sequence – but usually the two worlds never collide.

However, lately I’ve noticed a trend of artists and designers paying homage to their favorite films in their own creative way.  Whether it be the re-imagining of a film’s poster or the designing of a cover for a film’s novelization; I simply can’t get enough of this stuff.

It is in admiration of this movement that I’ve hand picked my favorite 25 Imaginative Illustrations Inspired By Film. Hope you like them.

Wall Medicated

Posted by Andrew Lindstrom

Today I’m proud to release the official WellMedicated Wallpaper for your iPhone or Desktop!

Truth be told, this is something I was hoping to couple with the launch of the redesign, but yet again my disorganization has gotten the better of me.  So here’s hoping this is a case of ‘better late than never’.

The wallpaper design is fairly minimalist and simple.  No pesky credits, web addresses or words in general for that matter to clutter it up.  I hate it when that happens and I’m sure you do to.
