Project Description
Over the past five years of working for Bloomberg’s Graphics team, I’ve been involved in a surprising range of topics and projects and this past year was no exception. A small sample of this body of work includes breaking news on the world’s richest person, the plans for (and questioning the justification of) a megacity from scratch in the Arabian desert, presenting a transparent methodology for a daily Brexit economic indicator and an in-depth analysis of the looming retail apocalypse told through charts and maps.
What makes this project innovative?
Some pieces are more explanatory, based on a single event while others are more exploratory and evergreen, updating with new data on a regular basis.
What was the impact of your project? How did you measure it?
My mother finally has an idea of what it is that I do for a living. My parents-in-law now read as part of their daily news source.
