As an information design and datavis connoisseur, and instructor of interactive information design at Northeastern, I would like to expand my circle of colleagues for sharing notes and inspiration.
Only one...?! For clarity, utility and mission: gapminder.org/world, Amanda Cox's NYTimes work, and most anything at good.is/infographics; for data visualization's ability to reveal surprising perspectives: Similar Diversity — visualizing the Holy Books of five world religions, http://similardiversity.net; and for sheer beauty: Casey Reas' tissue prints, http://reas.com/iperimage.php?section=works&view=0&work=tissue_p

As graphic designer with a background in science, I enjoy translating complex topics into engaging, digestible user experiences. I make and oversee educational interactive projects at WGBH, and teach interactive information design at Northeastern.
