We reveal the invisible, turning data into meaningful imagery and playful interactive tools that help everyone make sense of twenty-first century environmental challenges.
Our core expertise is to turn data into engaging and dimensionally accurate volumes in familiar landscapes. We often do this by switching between personal and global scales. This brings numbers to life and makes people more likely to explore the data further.
For a population approaching ten billion people to live sustainably we need to rapidly de-carbonise our industrial systems and change our behaviour to align with planetary boundaries. We can't do that if we are not engaged.
From enquiry through to delivery our experienced team can help transform your data into engaging imagery. Every enquiry is unique and we have worked with a variety of clients in businesses, NGO's, universities, local councils and policy makers for a variety of project outcomes. Get in touch with us if you have an idea that you think we can help with.
We have helped at all levels from local government to the United Nations, with primary audiences ranging from young people in England and Wales to the Environment Ministers of countries in the Asia Pacific region. People in all communities can help find ways to live within environmental limits. We can help you to engage them.
Our work has been widely used in education around the world for schools and universities and also less formal settings such as museums and a zoo. Our images have also been used by Al Gore and the UK Government’s Chief Scientist, in public programmes and for specialists in automotive and other sectors.
Our work has been used in a variety of campaigns from cleaner air in New York City to showing historic global emissions, from low carbon farming to reaching young people on Twitter. Sometimes a striking image or animation can cut through the noise, expand an audience, engender a call to action or spark a new level of engagement and deepen understanding.
We can help you reach diverse audiences from employees to shareholders, in news, marketing and corporate reporting, from local firms to the Far East. We can tell your story about emissions, water, resource efficiency or other environmental or economic themes. We can also work with your creative agency where our science-based approach complements the creative flair of others.
Dr Paul Lunt from the University of Plymouth talks about a recent study into peatlands and how they are the world’s best long term biological carbon stores.
How much living stuff is the Earth supporting? In this article we investigate Biomass and some recent data visualisations.
Republican Congressman Mo Brooks earlier this month states that sea-level rise is caused by masses of rocks falling into the sea, not thermal expansion. How can a quick calculation and a sketch help to visualise this?
Data physicalisation and how it can be used to give people a feel - sometimes literally - for unfamiliar quantities.
If we shared British land equally amongst its 63 million inhabitants, we'd each have just over a third of a hectare. We'd also have 60 trees each.
