Adaptive Path interview with Zipcar CEO Scott Griffith

“Zipcar is uniquely a self-service business. What we’re trying to do is give you a very conveniently located automobile that doesn’t require human interaction or human intervention to get into it. And that requires a lot of technology in the background, but hopefully it is very simple to use for a member.”

I haven’t personally used Zipcar, but I hear great things. Has anyone out there ever had a negative experience with them?

A Periodic Table of Visualization Methods
There are numerous ways to communicate information through visuals. Here is a collection of samples organized by content type: data, information, concept, strategy, metaphor, compound. My design partner Lily and I are eager to incorporate at least one new visualization into each new project we take on. So far I’ve only used seven of these. How many have you used?

Design Police
“Bring bad design to justice.” Five templates of labels to print and stick to designs that truly suck. Best not to use for client work.

A lot of design agencies just don’t take the time to produce a site that truly reflects their skill set and unique perspective. Schematic did. And I love it for its simultaneous simplicity and complexity. One day I’ll steal the idea for my personal portfolio.
