Hello! As a visualisation strategist, I am interested in how data visualisation and enlightening visuals can be used to communicate complex knowledge. “Complex,” as in fuzzy, overwhelming, abstract, multidimensional or just plain complicated. I work as an author, consultant and concept developer for interactive installations as well as data and information-based communication. I have previously worked as Head of Design for Sapera, a Berlin-based consultancy specialising in information visualisation and strategic consulting. My latest book was released in May 2019 from art and design publisher TASCHEN. The History of Information Graphics is a massive overview of some 1200 years of infovis excellence.

In cooperation with New York-based Princeton Architectural Press, I released a book about the work of Charles-Joseph Minard in 2018. Minard is considered one of the most important forefathers of modern information visualization, and the book assembles his complete oeuvre in statistical graphics. Before that, I had published two books with art and design publisher TASCHEN which cover the contemporary burst in the field of information graphics and data visualisation. Other collaborators over the years include TRIAD Berlin and ART+COM Studios, as well as 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 this form below.
