Apples to Apples: Project 1

I think this image is fun and worthwhile both to appreciate and critique because it has a lot to offer. It's a long graphic with a lot of cartoon images so there is a lot to think about and possibly improve on. I was immediately drawn in because of the topic and the first graph and I wanted to read on. Some things I may want to consider are the layout of the image (because you can only scroll up/down), color/composition (colors used, contrast, cartoon images), and shape (because they use some unconventional shapes in their graphics).

Effective Design: Good design

I really like the way facebook.com is organized. I think the layout is dispersed in a way because each piece has its assigned space. The website is designed in such a way that allows multiple generations to be able to use it without getting bogged down by confusion as to what each of the links goes to, especially after they transitioned to timeline format.
