SCALED IN MILES
Scaled in Miles is a project by Fathom (an information design company) to pay tribute to Miles Davis and the collaborations throughout his career. Their project includes a poster and interactive website depicting the musicians, instruments, Dates, and places each session was recorded. Despite such a large amount of data being displayed, both visuals maintain a minimalist look and simple blue colour palate. I particularly like the layout of the still image as the use of bars and lines look like the layout of a digital audio workstation like garage band.
These graphics have influenced my design to have a musical theme. Therefore, I used the sound wave recordings of the tracks that got into the top 20 in the charts. I also like the circular layout and think it could be interesting to do a timeline in this way instead of just a straight line. If possible I would like to try and make a moving timeline to try and improve my skills in this field.
