"Was discussing Zelda vs Peach today with a friend. They were my fave characters in Super Smash. I was trying to explain the subtlety of design and how you can express a lot about a character even before you seen how they behave. I did a quick redesign to illustrate my point. Peach is an extrovert, so she’s up and out. Round against flat, with a little bounce thrown in. Zelda on the other hand is down and in. She is long and lean, with a much narrower silhouette. She has a lot more substance than Peach, so her clothes are highly decorated, plus a fair bit of her face is obstructed by her hair. There are a few more subtleties thrown in as well. Have fun looking for them"

Nailed it.

Perfect comments, re: design! You can definitely tell a lot about a character’s personality before they act based on their design if it’s good enough! I love these interpretations.

Penguin watching made with data. Before data became a household name, zoos depended on good weather and maybe the birth of a cute, baby elephant to draw crowds. Now they’re able to keep visitors coming with social media and analytics. Like The Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington. It feeds the public’s interest in the zoo with data by taking what they learn from comments on social media and offering special deals and membership events on the fly.
