We are indeed living in the age of infographics. The amount of data collected and created everyday is exploding at a rapidly accelerating rate and the visualization of that data – the ability to transform those raw numbers into something understandable and digestable – is swiftly becoming a great tool and asset. Enter, Visual.ly, a socially enabled community site spearheaded by a team of partners like GOOD Magazine, CNN, Hyperakt and more, designed to create a space for designers to share, discuss and view infographics from all over the world.

Brooklyn based Hyperakt recently unveiled their fantastic UNICEF’s Voices of Youth identity, a smart and vibrant mark that should garner well deserved attention for the organization. Voices of Youth is not alone in Hyperakt’s portfolio as a thoughtful and modern approach to a good cause. While perusing their website I was especially drawn to their continued work for the grassroots organization, the North Star Fund, and their ability to build upon and expand from the identity design through event branding and collateral over several years. Inspirational work for sure.
