A lovely info-graphic about cocktails. This might not be the clearest way to present information on cocktails, but it is a good example of how beautiful design can entice the reader into decoding a visual challenge. Also of note is how pleasurable that decoding and discovery can be.

Sixty40 is helping judge this competition for iRiver. Apparently one submits ones animation/motion graphics or song and if one wins, one gets to be the official video of their new player plus tour the country in one’s own balloon. Or something.
