A project that I've been working on for climate charity Possible has just gone live! The Car Free Megacities data dashboard shows how London, Paris and New York are freeing themselves of the dangers, pollution and emissions caused by mass private car ownership. It's available in both English and French.
This week I had my first day at Possible, a London-based climate charity. My official job title is "data visualization designer", which will involve creating data visualizations, infographics and maps - primarily on the Car-Free Cities campaign. I'll be working remotely from my home in Gothenburg, Sweden. PossiblePossibleTogether we made

In it, I'm doing something I've not seen done much in the plotter community - data visualization using a pen plotter. Drawing dataviz with a
This morning, in the Data Visualization Society's wonderful Slack community, Jane Zhang asked a question. She asked: Has there been any good articles that are well-thought out that try to go into the nomenclature of data visualization vs. information design vs. infographic?It's something that I've thought about a bit,
Over on Nightingale, the Journal of the Data Visualization Society, I've written a 3,000 word feature on one of my favourite environmental visuals - the planetary boundary graphic. Here's a excerpt, from a section where the coordinator of the international Planetary Boundaries Research Network critiques the chart. She doesn't
