While movie series are all the rage right now thanks to stuff like The Hunger Games, The Hobbit and so on, it’s not every movie that deserved a sequel, let alone a trilogy.  Still, trilogies are not something new to the industry, and we’ve had some incredible classics over the years, but have you ever stopped to consider which ones are the best ones? Well, this is what the critics and users of IMDB have agreed on.

The New Chic Geek Accessory at a Wedding: An Infographic http://walyou.com/wedding-infographic/ http://walyou.com/wedding-infographic/#comments Thu, 12 Sep 2013 15:57:49 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=169250

Ah, amour. Is there anything else like it? Especially in the case of the true geek, not quite. That’s why the most amazing event is the geek wedding. And what better way to share your special day with everyone then to put the road of your relationship up in one awesome wedding infographic?

Well, as the founder of Walyou and co-founder of Visual.ly, our very own Tal Siach really had no other option than to start getting crafty after his beautiful fiancee (now wife!) agreed to marry our top geek.

With the help of Raj Kamal, data visualization designer extraordinaire, Tal created the ultimate way to show his own story of geek love – a wedding infographic.

The wedding infographic is more than just a visualization of their relationship together; it is the epitome of visual storytelling. The story of Limor and Tal, including their background, family, peculiarities and quirks shows the progression of how life has made an impact on who they are, but who they will become is to be determined together from their wedding on.

The happy couple with their infographic at the wedding.

Infographics have a certain affinity with geek culture. It helps us explain who we are, what we like while offering a more easily understandable – and fun – way to visualize data and storytelling. They’ve taken off in the past couple of years, soaring their way into the world of respectable journalism (but still providing the occasionally light-hearted attitude to daily life) … even to a point where Visual.ly’s create a Marketplace where anyone can go to work with a qualified designer and create an infographic.

The Love Story of Seren & Marc, shown below, is the same infographic (specific names/places/dates changed for privacy) that was featured at the entrance to Tal and Limor’s wedding. In addition to just a straight-forward visualization of their life ‘data,’ they’ve hidden a few ‘Easter eggs’ of information for the benefit – well, at least inside joke – of various groupings of friends and family.

What Would Gandalf Do (Infographic) http://walyou.com/what-would-gandalf-do-infographic/ http://walyou.com/what-would-gandalf-do-infographic/#comments Wed, 11 Sep 2013 11:00:52 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=169098

If Lord of the Rings is the greatest Fantasy story ever written, told and eventually brought to the screen, than there’s a good chance that Gandalf the grey or the White is the best Wizard of all-time, seen or introduced on any medium.

While A Song of Ice and Fire fans might argue the LOTR claim for best story ever, it doesn’t really have a wizard in the way they’re usually perceived. So there’s no epically awesome character like Gandalf, or at least in the way Gandalf is awesome.

What makes him so great, besides being a wizard? It’s hard to put a finger on what Gandalf does “on-screen”, because after his transformation from Grey to White, there isn’t a whole lot he actually does in order to make Frodo accomplish his quest. But he has the sort of presence that helps things get accomplished a bit more smoothly.

As this brilliant infographic from LOTRPROJECT clearly shows, he actually prefers doing nothing, and simply overseeing events while others do the actual dirty work.

Who Belongs With Whom In Game of Thrones? [Infographic] http://walyou.com/game-of-thrones-infographic/ http://walyou.com/game-of-thrones-infographic/#comments Wed, 03 Apr 2013 17:49:59 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=162051

Things like allegiances and friends can change in a heartbeat in Westeros, so here’s something that should help newcomers keep track of who is with whom with minimal spoilers.

Game of Thrones is the greatest thing on TV right now, and with the huge launch the third season has just had (even becoming officially the most pirated thing ever), it is to be expected there will be some newcomers to the brilliant world created by George R. R. Martin. This graph is intended to help them, as well as veterans who need to do some memory jogging if they haven’t read the books recently.

This project by Nigel Even Dennis covers pretty much every character we’ve seen in the show up until now, and some that will be introduced this third season such as the Reeds, vassals of the North, and Greyworm of the Unsullied. The good part? No deaths are mentioned, so you can read without getting much spoiled. Give it a go, and check the whole thing by clicking here.

LEGO Mini Figures Are Major Collectibles [Infographic] http://walyou.com/lego-minifig/ http://walyou.com/lego-minifig/#comments Tue, 08 Jan 2013 17:40:06 +0000 http://walyou.com/?p=157886

Long-time LEGO lovers let loose! All of those LEGO Minifigs you’ve been stockpiling just for fun are actually considered major collectibles, too.

LEGO figs bring your favorite LEGO constructions to life, so much to life that if they had their own country, it would contain the world’s largest population today (4 billion). If you think that number itself is impressive, consider the possibilities … 8 quadrillion of them; that’s how many ways you can combine all of the LEGO mini figure parts ever made. However, the gender disparity is quite large, at a 18:1 male to female LEGO minifig ratio.

Looking for more cool facts you’d never think to ask about the LEGO minifigs? See the infographic below for some pretty unbelievable details.

iPhone users worldwide have gotten hooked on Instagram, and as kids we used to send our friends candygrams. Now as hip, design-savvy adults, the one thing lacking was an “a-gram” for graphics. Not to fear! Visually is here with their Venn-a-gram tool available to all!

The Visually Venn Diagram tool allows you to customize a basic Venn Diagram template. At the moment, you need to work with only 2 circles for your Venn, but you can choose the color combinations and from one of five backgrounds (including one for coffee, outer-space, music and film).

For the meanwhile, it seems this tool will indeed be just for fun, but members of the Visually Team claim there will be more features added in the (hopefully nearer) future. In that case, it has the potential to be useful for more than just your own entertainment or sharing with your friends.

How did they come up with this idea, anyway? Take a look at their related blog post on the Venn-a-gram Venn Diagram creation tool for all the details.

What are you waiting for? Go customize your very own Venn Diagram … and don’t forget to share the results with us!
