Digital technology has not only revolutionized the way designers work, but also the kinds of designs they produce. The development of the computer as a design environment has encouraged a new breed of digital designer; keen to explore the unique creative potential of the computer as an input/output device. Data-driven Graphic Design introduces the creative potential of computational data and how it can be used to inform and create everything from typography, print and moving graphics to interactive design and physical installations. Using code as a creative environment allows designers to step outside the boundaries of commercial software tools, and create a set of unique, digitally informed pieces of work. The use of code offers a new way of thinking about and creating design for the digital environment. Each chapter outlines key concepts and techniques, before exploring a range of innovative projects through case studies and interviews with the artists and designers who created them. These provide an inspirational, real-world context for every technique. Finally each chapter concludes with a Code section, guiding you through the process of experimenting with each technique yourself (with sample projects and code examples using the popular Processing language supplied online to get you started).

Release Date: 2015-10-03
Genre: Business & Economics

Data is changing the nature of competition. Making sense of it is tough. Taking advantage of it is tougher. There is a business opportunity for organizations to use data and analytics to transform business performance. Organizations are by their nature complex. They are a constantly evolving system made up of objectives, processes designed to meet those objectives, people with skills and behaviours to do the work required, and all of this organised in a governance structure. It is dynamic, fluid and constantly moving over time. Using data and analytics you can connect all the elements of the system to design an environment for people to perform; an organization which has the right people, in the right place, doing the right things, at the right time. Only when everyone performs to their potential, do organizations have a hope of getting and sustaining a competitive edge. Data-driven Organization Design provides a practical framework for HR and Organization design practitioners to build a baseline of data, set objectives, carry out fixed and dynamic process design, map competencies, and right-size the organization. It shows how to collect the right data, present it meaningfully and ask the right questions of it. Whether looking to implement a long term transformation, large redesign, or a one-off small scale project, this book will show you how to make the most of your organizational data and analytics to drive business performance.

Release Date: 2006-10-01
Genre: Design

Chosen by the Editors at Amazon.com as one of the top 50 Best Books of 2005 - Now in paperback! With the world's economy in a slump, the Middle East's never ending conflict, and the on-going war on terrorism, there is a heightened awareness in the world community of the many sides of the numerous issues that both directly and indirectly affect our lives. Increasingly, people are feeling powerless and underrepresented because they have no voice. Designers, however, have a voice. They are among the most influential bystanders because their skills enable them to communicate a message easily through the Web or through posters and printed pieces. A picture is worth a thousand words and designers have used this adage to their advantage for years by creating simple yet powerful designs that immediately convey the message to the viewer. The Design of Dissent focuses on graphic work that designers have made as a result of social and political concerns. The time is certainly ripe as the U.S., and world, flares in opposition on so many important issues.

Thanks to initiatives like the Common Core and Race to the Top, accountability requirements continue to be a reality for educators. Yet many are still unsure of how to use data to make well-informed instructional decisions. The Data-Driven Classroom comes to the rescue with a systematic, universal process that shows teachers how to: examine student assessment results to identify a curricular or skill area to target for individual intervention or large-group instructional revision; develop, implement, and assess the effectiveness of the intervention or revision; and develop an action plan for future instructional cycles. Author Craig A. Mertler sheds light on how teachers can make sense of overwhelming standardized test reports while avoiding pitfalls like over-interpreting data. In these pages you will also find practical classroom examples and templates designed to guide teachers of all grade levels and subject areas through the comprehensive decision-making framework.

Genre: Business & Economics

Every corporation in the world is using big data to some degree. The winners in today's data-driven environment create cultures that embrace big data in order to outshine the competition. The Big Data-Driven Business shows what it takes to create a thriving business culture that has intense focus on the customer by analyzing data, by being open to the truths it reveals, and by having the guts to act on those conclusions in order to prevail in the marketplace. The benefits of big data are available to any company, any size, in any industry. In this vital resource, Russell Glass and Sean Callahan offer real-world examples that act as an invaluable guide to establish a system that gathers and analyzes the data being generated by customers for delivering insights and revealing opportunities that can't be realized any other way. Once an effective big data system is established, competitive advantage and outsized shareholder value are bound to follow. The marketplace has entered an era where the customer holds all the cards. With unprecedented choice in both the consumer world and the B2B world, it's imperative that businesses gain a greater understanding of their customers and prospects. Filled with compelling real-world examples, The Big Data-Driven Business clearly demonstrates how leading marketers embrace software platforms that include marketing automation software, customer relationship management systems, data management platforms, and analytics tools to help make sense of customer behavior. The most effective strategy ties together the elements of this software, which is known as the marketing stack. With this insight about the target market, not only can the marketing team serve relevant messages to the right people at the right time, it can also anticipate their needs and perhaps even create the products their customer base didn't even know it wanted. Better information allows for better decisions, better targeting, and better reach. Big data has become an indispensable tool for the most effective marketers in the business, and it's becoming a necessity for businesses that want to thrive. Remaining relevant as the marketplace evolves requires a full understanding and application of big data, and The Big Data-Driven Business provides the practical guidance businesses need.
