pop culture meets cartography

Pop culture for me is a strange addiction. I read an article about why people get obsessive about checking their newsfeed with every notification (guilty), and then I read another and another with kids about why the average young internet user’s attention span has changed to rapid fire snippets (I can tell you right now I did not read the entire articles mentioned above).

But hey, I love the internet as much as the next cubicle colleague with unrestricted access. Especially when it comes to INFOGRAPHICS which, according to the wikipedia definition, are basically a form of map. Only it’s not geographic and really about mapping out connections.

And when infographic meets pop culture, my worlds collide.

I found Pop Chart Lab that sells prints of these. Now I hope they make some money from this, because most of these look like they weren’t just whipped up on a lazy holiday Monday, but what do I know about graphic designers.

Just look at these veggies!

I’ll have more on infographics in the next post. Check out Pop Chart Lab’s print collection in the meantime.
