Illustration of ideas and concepts

Posted to Infographics  |  Nathan Yau

In a different take on the infographic, RSA Animate illustrates the ideas and concepts proposed by invited speakers at RSA lectures. A recorded audio version lecture runs in the background a hand, possibly the same hand who played Thing on the Addams Family, draws what the lecturer is saying.

Below is the illustrated version of Professor Phillip Zimbardo’s lecture on the secret powers of time. The original video of Zimbardo speaking at a podium follows. Same message, but very different visuals.
