The importance of being colorful.

How do colors affect purchase? This is the question raised by KISSmetrics. I have to admit that in my case, as consumer, it counts, and a lot. Mostly for new products, of course. But how many new products are delivered to (on-line) shops every day? And the competition getting high, a bright color and a nice packaging can help the buyers to make the choice.

Films revealed

Cinemetrics is a tool which creates a visual ‘fingerprint’ of movies.

This project is about measuring and visualizing movie data, in order to reveal the characteristics of films and to create a visual “fingerprint” for them. Information such as the editing structure, color, speech or motion are extracted, analyzed and transformed into graphic representations so that movies can be seen as a whole and easily interpreted or compared side by side.

The “fingerprints” look just like piecharts, but way cooler, as Information is beautiful said!

Tip of the day: check out the website of the very talented Frederic Brodbeck, visual artist gratuated from the Royal Academy of Arts (KABK), Den Haag.
