I mentioned a while back that I’ll be posting something on the rejected designs and the process I went through to create some of the visualisations. That’s still on my to do list, and hopefully in the next couple of weeks I’ll get that out. Infact it may be a 2 parter as I’m imagining it to be a pretty big post, with lots of samples of styles and designs, and why I rejected them over the published ones.
Anyways, the reason there hasn’t been an update in so long is because I’m in the process of moving down to London. Actually I’m in London at the moment, without a computer and without the internet, which is why I’m in an internet cafe at the moment with 9 minutes remaining on my time trying to write this update pretty damn fast.
Hopefully I’ll have a new laptop by the end of next week, and will crank out some more stuff soon.
Also, I’ve accepted a new job at a company in London dealing with search technology, news, and data visualisation, and I’m just waiting to sign the contracts. Hopefully the paperwork will be done sometime this week, or early next, and I can let you know who that lucky bunch are!
The good thing about this is that in alot of respects, DesigningTheNews will become my day job. Bonus! Which means in areas where the work isn’t subject to NDA, I can share some of the things I’m working on right here. With you. Before anyone else. :)
Stay tuned! And thanks to everyone who’s emailed me wanting posters. At this rate if interest keeps up I may have to do another run!
