If there’s one thing that most nerds love, it’s information. And if you visit this site often, you know how much we here at Nerdlocker love pop culture art. So mixing the two together might seem like a sure thing. And you would be absolutely correct.
The dynamic duo of Kevin Tong and Tom Whalen launched Info•Rama in 2014, to create infographic posters that are meticulously researched and illustrated. Previous examples of beautiful and informative artwork in the realms of science, technology and culture can be found at the Info•Rama website.
Info•Rama, from the beginning has just been so enjoyable because Mitch Putnam, Tom Whalen, and I stumbled upon something that combines all the things we love: art, learning, and working with friends whose art we admire. I’ve been a big fan of Tom for years and Matt Taylor consistently delivers top notch intelligent work, so there was no question about having him join us. The work they’ve done for the show is among their finest.

For their newest show, fellow Mondo artist Matt Taylor was invited to join and add his particular style into the mix, and the results seem to be a success. This newest show seeks to illustrate and illuminate classics like Back to the Future, JAWS, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Avengers, Star Wars and much more.
Since it launched, the Info•Rama project from Kevin Tong and Tom Whalen has been one of our favorite new developments in the poster world. We were excited to bring their illustrative infographic approach to our film properties, and adding Matt Taylor to the show was an incredible bonus. Sometimes collaborations come easily and feel really natural, and this is a perfect example of that.
