Below is some of my recent work. I have limited availability for freelance work at the moment — contact me if you want to talk. Interested in how I work and what I can do? Check out my user experience portfolio.
In the lead up to the centenary of the First World War I was curious as how it might be possible to visualise the massive death toll and ultimate tragedy of the conflict. I started looking for datasets and found the Commonwealth War Graves Commission had a very detailed dataset of all Commonwealth casualties from the First World War.
I began exploring the data and after tried many different approaches at visualising the data before opting to go for a very long horizontal layout to work well on tablet/mobiles as well as conveying a sense of time and gradual build up of total deaths.
By using current populations of towns and cities in Australia, Britain, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand and South Africa I hoped to further emphasise the huge death toll of the conflict.

Client: BBC World Service / BBC News
Athletes Like You was an interactive visualisation that allowed users to see what Olympic medal winners shared a similar height and weight. Originally for the BBC World Service’s language services, it was also syndicated in English by BBC News. My role involved creating the initial idea and prototyping through to data visualisation and interaction design.
