Name One Hello World
Location Syracuse, NY
Described as “PostSecret for the ears” by Paste Magazine, One Hello World is a collection of voicemails set to their own soundtrack created by an anonymous composer. Callers from across the world participate by dialing One Hello World’s voicemail and sharing their story. The result is a musical compilation giving listeners a cross-section of the human experience. With the help of a successful Kickstarter project, a 30-track debut album, The Listener is set to be released in late March.

Tumblr Insights: Election 2012 Report
With the U.S. presidential campaign already off to a roaring start, news from the Republican primary contests has been a major topic across Tumblr. As we near another crescendo in Florida, we were curious how the campaign—from the numerous debates and rallies, to election ads and gaffes—has played out so far in terms of the type and quantity of attention received by each candidate on Tumblr.
The first graph shows how frequently each candidate’s name appeared in posts. The second shows other tags most frequently associated with each candidate. We’re most impressed with the viral power of one creative concept blog: When Rick Perry’s Unpopular Opinions sprang up as a parody of one of Perry’s campaign videos, he easily became the most blogged candidate overnight.
Our Insights team will be bringing you more data as the campaigns progress!
Name Richey Beckett
Location Wales, UK
Richey Beckett is an illustrator from South Wales in the UK. He works in pen and ink, mostly on music-related design projects like album artwork, merchandise, and poster art. “For me, working with new bands, exciting new records treading fresh ground—that’s as rewarding as working for any established act because you never know where it’s going to take you and what the finished record is capable of achieving,” he says. Richey’s dark and mysterious works have been exhibited around the world, and he sells limited edition prints through his store.
