I’m a writer, designer & creative director living in London.

I founded information is beautiful, @infobeautyaward & @iibstudio (sold 2015)

My current projects are Beautiful News, @VizSweet and a secret secret thing.

Love science. Journalism. Truth and beauty. The story beneath the story. And all things strange and interesting.

To that end, I’ve created over 1,500 graphics – many contained in three tomes: Information is beautiful (HarperCollins 2010) and Knowledge is Beautiful (2014) and Beautiful News (2022). Both use data-visualisation & information design to tell new kinds of stories, convey interesting ideas, bend minds etc.

As a speaker, I’ve spoken at TED Global and over 200 conferences and events.

I run a startup Vizsweet – a lovely artisan tool for creating beautiful interactive data visualisations. It’s currently invite only. But try me 🙂

And, yes, it’s true – I made The Helicopter Game.
