Manchester-based wizards at data visualisation

a-travellers-guide-to-tap-waterI’ve said here often of my love of a good chart. The Economist’s Daily Chart is a source of many of my favourites.

Even better than a good chart is an infographic which allies data with creative presentation that seemingly extracts even more value from the data. I wrote about infographics on the scale of national indebtedness a while back, and the creative data visualisation of American-based company – Demonocracy.

It seems that there’s a UK business that’s good at data visualisation – it’s NeoMam Studios in Manchester. Their work has a clarity, intelligence, and subtle design ethic. Their recent infographic [click on image to link to the infographic] on A Traveller’s Guide to Tap Water is a humdinger – not only does it give the data on tap water safety, it also gives advice on how to make tap water safe.

I’ve subscribed to their newsletter on infographics.
