Opened in January 2014, the 242,000-square-foot, Norman Foster + Partners designed, Edward P. Evans Hall is the new home of the Yale School of Management (SoM). To create a lasting impression of the school’s presence and brand, and to easily communicate timely information, we created three floors of interactive media and digital signage for the students, faculty and visitors at the Yale School of Management. This narrow cast network displays real time information such as school-wide agendas, class and conference schedules, special announcements, insightful information and photography from students, staff and guest speakers as well as customized presentations and broadcast media.
In the beginning, there was Apple. When Steve & Co. were obsessing about how to make computers feel as beautiful as possible, typography was singled out for special attention. They wanted type on the screen to look just as perfect as it could in print—a grand plan to make computer interfaces into crafted objects every bit as beautifully considered as a hand-cut letter or a perfectly proportioned chair. And they won. Today we see more care being piled onto pixels than ever.
Continuing on their success in the mobile space, the social networking giant’s second quarterly results reported around 1.07 billion active mobile users a month as of June 30th, which is an increase of 31 percent compared to last year and a slight climb over last quarter. What’s particularly notable is that of the $2.68 billion the company made from advertising this quarter (it made a tidy sum of $2.91 billion overall), 62 percent of it came from mobile ads. That’s definitely higher than the 41 percent it made from mobile ads this time last year, and is on trend with what we saw earlier this April.
