Hello! My name is Sandra and I am a happy resident of Berlin.

I am a concept developer, author and editor. In collaboration with various teams, I develop innovative digital products and print publications. My main interests are in science communication, infographics & data visualization and great design. I currently work as the digital editor for the German magazine Kulturaustausch.

I have published four books about infographics and data visualisation. The History of Information Graphics (published in collaboration with Taschen) is a massive overview of some 1200 years of infographics. Furthermore, I released a book about the work of Charles-Joseph Minard (with Princeton Architectural Press) — one of the most important forefathers of modern information visualization. The book assembles his complete oeuvre of statistical maps, most of which was unknown to the public. Two earlier compilations, also published with Taschen, provide a survey of contemporary data visualisation.

Besides publishing my own books, I have collaborated with some brilliant minds in the creative sphere of Berlin, such as with strategic consultancy Sapera, with ART+COM Studios, a specialist for interactive mediascapes, and the data science-consultancy Idalab. My academic background is in art history and cultural theory.

I support the work of Amnesty International. For some random meddling follow me on Twitter. If you want to get in touch, please drop me a line using the form below.
