You probably know about the work of Nicholas Feltron, who releases an annual report of obsessively gathered personal data. But did you know about his blog? One way of thinking about how to map your personal life.

Hey guys, I read about these two Swiss designers in a book, and checked out their website. It’s really insane, the colors flash and there are some very staccato noises, but it’s very interesting, and has many layers. Their Introduction window that pops open should be explored, they talk about things that are sort of related to understanding messages between people, and all that semiotic jazz.

Vincent Perrottet is another amazing french poster artist who works with Annete Lenz (the woman who does the theater posters that Tom showed on Thursday). 

This guy makes a ridiculous amount of work here’s his website.
