BLOG POSTS

Visualisingdata.com was originally launched in 2010 originally to serve as a blog to help continue the momentum of my learning from studying the subject via a Masters degree. I continue to publish articles and share announcements that track developments in my professional experiences as well as developments in the data visualisation field at large.

This is a collection of all my published posts, starting with the newest and dating back to 2010, tracking. These posts include articles, design commentaries, podcast updates, professional updates, and general news from across the data visualisation field.

The scrap metal art of Jason Heppenstall

This is a slight departure from the normal topics covered on this blog, though it does still concern creativity and the use of materials to create representations. I wanted to share a more personal, non-work related piece in celebration of artistic talent.
