Many of my senior friends are getting jobs for next year. WHile I am not currently in this boat since grad school is in my future, finding a flashy, professional and creative business card template is a good way to make yourself memorable. In this harsh economy, with the hundreds of talented professionals in the workforce, standing out is a way to keep yourself in demand. And lets face it, who doesn’t want to be in demand?

This infographic is a great guide to creating your custom business cards. With a bunch of typefaces to narrow your font search, and then popular fonts within each typeface, the daunting task of picking a font becomes much easier. Choosing colors is another area to express creativity, but as the infographic states you should use the CYMK color mode for print, rather than RGB, which is used for web.

Another interesting idea is to use unconventional materials. These days, many creatives use materials such as wood, metal, magnet and meat or cookies! Get creative, infographers! [Via]

I have a pretty cool infographic for you guys today, Geeks vs. Nerds, which one are you? We see them everywhere, geeks and nerds, maybe you even see them in the mirror, but how different are they really? Well for one thing it comes down to the whole pc vs mac debate, geeks like to use macs because they’re cool where as nerds use pcs. From today’s infographic I would say the modern day geeks has a lot in common with the hipster of today. Enjoy and don’t forget to share! [via]

Pulp Fiction Chronology [infographic]

January 8, 2012 |  by  |  Entertainment, Movies  |  2 Comments

Here is the chronological sequence of the Tarantino’s cult classic Pulp Fiction. Not only is it one of the most influential independent films of all time, but the unconventional plot makes the story a labyrinth. Critics often butt heads over the simple matter of what genre this masterpiece is. It’s been called everything from “neo-noir” to black comedy to “trippy fantasy landscape”.

If you’ve seen it, I’m preaching to the converted. Unless, of course, the movie was “too weird” for you. I, for one don’t mind that. A truly unique film is a gem, especially when it is projected through cream-of-the-crop professionals. (Quentin Tarantino, Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta and Uma Thurman, to name a few)

If you haven’t, and you’ve got an open mind… well, it’s must-see. This is film in the 90’s at it’s finest. In a rather post-modern fashion, it’s non-linear storyline intertwines the lives of all sorts of American deviants. It focuses on all the sheisty criminal activity that culminates beneath the surface of our culture.

For all the fans, here’s a dissection of the twisting, labyrinthine plot, laid out like never before. I was very pleased to find this. (via)

The Effect Your Father’s Music Has On Your Own [infographic]

Whether you like it or not, your parents play a huge role in the way you turn out. Duh. Their influence can spread from style of dress to the way you speak.

This infographic hits home personally, as I’ve  been seeing alot of distant and close relatives other the past few weeks. I quickly and easily noticed that each cousin, niece, and nephew was so different in their own way, but so much like the set of adults that birthed them. The thickness of their Louisiana accent or the inches above or below the waist they wore their pants. All identifiers they’ve acquired pointed back to  one source. The parentals.

It caused me to seek out what traits I was “blessed” to receive from my folks.

The infographic below went down a route I never considered, although it is something very noteworthy. The musical palette. In a few categories, it was spot on. I shamefully admit it picked up on my interests in Vampire Weekend and Animal Collective. But not really, because both bands rock.

Did this chart properly indicate your current day music selections? [Via]

Hitting the Slopes: Ski Destinations for Winter 2012 [infographic]

My skiing career is not something to brag about. I mean, blue and green slopes c’mon. The only time I took on a Black Diamond was on accident and I spent the rest of the hill on my butt scooting to the ski lodge.

So my Texas blood isn’t made for skiing, but I do love the mountains. Today’s infographic shows the best places to ski in Europe. Now I’ve been to Colorado, but can it compare to the Alps? I think not. Europe has always fascinated me and although I may not enjoy skiing too much I would love to take a vacation to any of these destinations.

If I had to pick I’d go with Zell Am See in Austria. I’ve been interested in Austria for sometime and a resort with an emphasis on intermediate level slopes seems like the place for me. [Via]
