Colors: Infographics of Shit

Colors magazine, the quarterly published by United Colors of Benetton, opted to launch a special issue on a taboo topic that is next to rare to address in a magazine, let alone the cover of the magazine. The topic, Shit: A survival Guide, “Feces. Excrement. Stool. Poop. Caca. Its name changes but not most people’s reaction to it.” That must be the reason that the magazine offered a bar of soap on its back cover to probably wash your hands after the magazine editors “introduce you properly to shit: you won’t regard it.” More

Welcome to the Design 4 Blog

This blog is for inspiration and education related to the Parsons Design 4 Information Design and Visualization course taught by Andrew Robinson. The objectives of this class are to help students in the Strategic Design Studies program to learn how to create effective information design as a tool for communication. Beauty in form and function, which communicates ideas effectively, is our goal.
