There has never been a definite guide to the names of the Minions in the original Despicable Me movie until today. Follow us on this journey as we unravel the identities of the minions together! Disclaimer: All information is found after countless hours of rewatching the movie and researching the available toy lines on the Internet.

Jalen and I spent a total of 1 week working on this infographic exclusively for Collectibly. We decided to kick-start this project because everybody loves minions and there are tons of minions collectors around the world. It is obviously a great way to bring our brand out there and this time, our infographic literally went viral! We weren’t able to keep track of all the shares/views or likes of our infographic across so many platforms, but at least on visua.ly, our infographic has garnered 33.5k views and 3.1k likes: http://visual.ly/whos-who-minions. Woot! Great content rules!
Although this infographic is a success for Collectibly, I am personally a bit sad when I saw our infographic being reposted on 9gag and many other platforms without crediting us as the original author. A random guy on 9gag cropped out our company’s watermarks and blatantly take credit of the post for himself, which makes me extremely furious as can be seen here http://9gag.com/gag/axNZgrK?ref=fb.s. Of course, we commented there to reclaim our authorship for the post. However, there is not much we can do because that 9gag post has gained a whole load of likes and views while our brand name was no where to be found. Anyway, we learnt a valuable lesson from this incident. Next time we will be ready to face these content thieves!


A Guide to Superman’s Kryptonite

A Guide to Superman's Kryptonite

This is the first infographic that I have designed in my entire life and it turned out to be quite decent. After two hours of us posting it on Collectibly’s blog, it went viral on tumblr. 200+ likes and reblogs totally got us by surprised. We didn’t expect the responses to be that many though because it’s the first time that we have churned out this kind of content. It’s like experimenting with new stuffs all the time and we never know what will be the result. It can be good, it can be bad, but at least we learnt our lessons. It’s basically the gist of a start-up’s life. So after all, our hypothesis is confirmed: people love infographics.

There were a good mix of both positive and negative responses, which is good because at least the content is interesting and controversial enough to spark some heated discussions. So I hope you enjoy reading it and do feel free to give me feedback because I would love to hear from all of you!
