data science for nonprofits and data journalists

Get Started

we create beautiful and insightful infographics.

when our infographics go viral you’ll be proud of your results.

You need infographics if you want more people knowing your work, sharing your work and supporting your work. You don’t need to create them on your own.
Our infographics are different because we work deeply with original research & data combined with years of technical and artistic training in how to visualize the results of complex analysis.

You have important things to say.  It can be hard to get them heard in today’s noisy news and reporting cycles.  It often works best to get your materials seen.

When your infographics go viral you’ll be proud of your results.
