I AIN'T MAD AT CHA

Back in March I had the pleasure of working on March Madness project with Weber Shandwick. I was part of a team watching the games—creating and posting content on the fly—as they progressed. Work included iconography, conceptualizing and designing some original data viz concepts, and general design help where needed. Above is a fraction of the work produced. In a later stage of the project we worked with Lightwave to get real game data from fans during the final four and the (thrilling!) Championship game. It was cool to see the interplay between fans and the game measured, and then trying to share that with the world as fast as possible!

UCONN the UCLA of Women's Basketball

While they might be one championship shy of UCLA's [men's] 11 championships. The UCONN Women's basketball team has been insanely dominate since winning their first championship in 1995. I wanted to visualize there staggering records and win percentage since then, which actually makes for tough data visualization, as there is so little variety, and so one sided in the win column, it's hard to make it look interesting. But I've tried, click below for full size. And Congrats to UCONN

They Live

I had heard about They Live years ago then forgot about it, and rarely heard it mentioned, until I recently watched Slavoj Žižek's Perverts Guide to Ideology. They Live is described is described by Slavoj as: "one of the forgotten masterpieces of the Hollywood Left. ... The sunglasses function like a critique of ideology. They allow you to see the real message beneath all the propaganda, glitz, posters and so on. ... When you put the sunglasses on you see the dictatorship in democracy, the invisible order which sustains your apparent freedom." 
  Just your everyday police brutality.
  They Live's visual style of it's propaganda, echos Barbara Kruger—and inspired a younger Shepard Fairey to use "OBEY". The aliens were deliberately made to look like ghouls according to Carpenter, who said: "The creatures are corrupting us, so they, themselves, are corruptions of human beings." [Wikipedia]
  Police mainly function as a controlling force for the aliens.
  The country's elite are either enriching themselves by co-operating with the aliens (selling out) or are actually aliens themselves. Also, I love when you hear a sample you've heard a hundred times, unexpectedly from the source, as I did with the opening of Binary Star's "Indy 500". The sample feature's a bit of They Live dialogue with a character saying at one point "what's the threat? We all sell out every day, mine as well be on the winning team" According to the director John Carpenter, when pitching the film and explaining "They want to own all our businesses" A Universal executive asked him "Where's the threat in that? We all sell out every day."—"I ended up using that line in the film." said Carpenter [Wikipedia] 
    In the end, the jig is up.
