The Donut Project

In the last days I stumbled upon The Donut Project. For several days I always had at least one tab open with content of The Donut Project. The blog is a collective project by graduates of the Kent State University’s Visual Communication Design program.
The Donut Project was created as a place for us to share inspirational, cool, hilarious, unconventional and interesting links with each other. Shortly thereafter, The Donut Project was released to the masses – with the mentality that if we found these links interesting, chances are that other people would too. (via thedonutproject.com)

Honestly the content at The Donut Project is really well chosen and curated. For example Cameron Moll’s talk about Good vs. Great Design. It takes some time. It is over an hour long but totally inspiring. Especially his point about the difference between getting influenced and getting inspired.
One of the posts which really impressed me was about an animated infographic, which was created by Buck for the documentary “Waiting for Superman”. I reported about the movie here already. Ricky Salsberry, editor of TDP, says “I think the video above is the best animated infographic I’ve ever seen.” And I think I have to agree. It is unbelievable:
