Here's a summary of interesting discoveries that the Investis Consulting team has recently made as we go about our work. Showcasing new projects, innovative content, smart tech and good reads:
|A new Segro website
We recently went live with a new website for Segro. One of the highlights is a brand new interactive map for their Properties section; providing users with a myriad of ways in which to search, filter and research Segro’s properties.
|The Life of Pi
Smaller, faster, cheaper…and on its way to space? The new Raspberry PI Zero looks set to spin out yet another revolution in modern computing. Priced at an absurd £4, we doubt many will be able to resist an impulse buy.
|Are you a Robot?
The consulting team was recently discussing how CAPTCHA forms are bad for accessibility and easy to abuse.
Hello reCAPTCHA. You (a human) can now simply tick a box and confirm that you are, indeed, not a robot.
|What killed the infographic?
“No one needs to see a weather radar… when all you really want to know is whether or not you need an umbrella.”
Have we strangled meaningful design? Or is the way we digest data just evolving? We found this article very helpful in explaining recent trends in infographics.
|How to conduct oneself
Orchestrated Paris immerses the user in a vibrant visual and musical experience. Choose from Dvorak’s ‘Symphony No.9’ or Bernstein’s ‘West Side Story’ and create your own poster from notes and colours as you conduct your mouse across the screen.
