Data & Design Basics
Four years ago we started working with visualisations of evidence in advocacy. Each of our journeys in this field has led us to more questions than answers at times. Yet we are more excited than ever about what can be done with data and design to create social change. We thought it was time to look at what we know, and what we still don't know. And then turn it inside out.
The Data & Design Basics Notes will do just that. Published every few weeks on this site, they'll be full of observations and advice on data and design in activism. We'll try to show its inner workings, covering topics like how to get data, how to organise it, how to tell stories with data. We'll also look at the security and ethics of working with data, along with publishing how-to's about choosing media formats, visual styles and aesthetics.
