Data by Design | Behind the Numbers

Rebecca Kaye,, Edinburgh


90% of the worlds data was collected in the last year. The alarming rate at which data is being collected does not appear to be slowing down.

Numbertelling is a data visualisation agency based in Edinburgh and specialises in presenting data in a meaningful and useful way. This talk is going to take you through a few examples of the visualisations we produce before going behind the scenes to show you the tools we use to create them.

Rebecca Kaye is passionate about both numbers and graphics and the story telling potential of patterns within data. After graduating from Manchester University with a BSc Mathematics and Statistics, and later with an MSc Design and Communication, she put theory into practice and applied her skills to deciphering complex datasets and communicating the results using design principles. These skills have led her to applying her design thinking to interactive commissions for the likes of RBS and Channel 4. Rebecca is now co-founder of numbertelling, specialising in all areas of data visualisation from information graphics to interactive reports and everything in between.

Event is free to attend and all welcome
