  4. Cover creation from Peter Belanger on Vimeo.

    “After working on the latest cover for Macworld Magazine I wanted to show what is involved in making a cover. I focused on the three main areas: the photography, photoshop and design. I chose a time lapse format to convey lots of information in a small amount of time. The only drawback of time lapse is that since half a day goes by in 30 seconds, the whole process seam so easy! Lots of details were left out of the design process (like the cover meetings and rounds of layout options). I began to photograph the design process after the layouts had already been narrowed down to just three cover designs.”

    Interesting to see the way from taking photos of those iPhones, photoshopping the hell out of it and putting it on the cover of new Macworld Magazine in one time-lapse video. But why did they do not just create the whole setup in 3D, because in the end the photo/object looks kind of digital constructed?

    “To be clear, we are looking at the loyalty/intensity of a fan. The more loyal a fan is, the higher up in the distribution they will fall, but the rarer they are. Fans with the highest intensity/loyalty are called True Fans.

    Regular Fans, refer to just about every other fan who associates themselves with you. Finally Casual Fans, well they know who you are and what you are about. But you have yet to convince them you’re worth more of their time.”

    Owen Kelly made this interesting infographic about The Long Tail Of Fans as a downloadable A3 poster. (via)

    Personas is a component of the Metropath(ologies) exhibit, currently on display at the MIT Museum by the Sociable Media Group from the MIT Media Lab. It uses sophisticated natural language processing and the Internet to create a data portrait of one’s aggregated online identity. In short, Personas shows you how the Internet sees you.”

    Great project, which logically works best if you are often in the internet or at least do have some profiles and informations to share. And your name shouldn’t be John Doe. “Ironically, John Doe is not John Doe’s given name.”

    “The old industry equation is broken. Success in the music industry is now based on direct engagement with fans, not pushing acts through radio and traditional media.

    The purchase decisions of a critical mass of consumers has moved online. Their interactions can be accurately measured, reported, and used to make better decisions. That’s where we come in.”

    With Next Big Sound you can easily watch the online audience of a music artist or band tracking the plays on last.fm and myspace and the general fan actions on the web. Really nice analysis project as a possible next step for the music industry.
