Some people need visualization to understand things, and others just don’t care. A friend sent us over this video on the Credit Crisis and we thought that it was worth posting for those that care but still do not quite understand what is going on or what they mean when they say “Credit Crisis”
A note from the creator of the video:
“The goal of giving form to a complex situation like the credit crisis is to quickly supply the essence of the situation to those unfamiliar and uninitiated. This project was completed as part of my thesis work in the Media Design Program, a graduate studio at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
For more on my broader thesis work exploring the use of new media to make sense of a increasingly complex world, visit jonathanjarvis.com.”
In 1876, Bradley, Voorhees & Day started out as makers of women’s bustels. In the late 1920’s they started manufacturing bathing suits from knit wool after years making knit underwear fro men and women. They sponserd Olympic swimmer John Weissmuller who made a number of appearances promoting the BVD brand. In the 60’s the company moved on to make spots clothes and tee shirts. Many cool vintage t-shirts are printed on BVD tee shirt blanks. Today they are owned by Fruit of a Loom, but are still making cool t-shirts under the BVD label.
