AEDO: Making data meaningful
Miguel Cabanzo

aedo, making data meaningfulAedo symbolizes the effort to develop a system that produces self-explanatory data visualizations, focused not on the repre-sentation of numbers but on their meaning. Via random selections of datasets, the application can build tales based on the data, uncovering in a visual and narrative way the stories behind the numbers, and giving a solid context to understand their meaning.

Typographr: A font tool for designers
Margherita Urbani

Typographr is an innovative computer application that allows designers to search for fonts in a much more intuitive way. Search results are laid out on a cartesian plane, with axes that can be defined according to parameters appropriate for the project in hand. The application allows you to hide fonts you know you don’t want and to focus in on directions that can emerge as you search.
