Information is Beautiful

1 Feb 2014

The author and designer David McCandless shares his passion for the merging of design, information, text and story in an age of high-speed living and information overload. Talking about his popular website and his bestselling book Information is Beautiful, he discusses the huge potential of visualised information to help us quickly understand, navigate and find meaning in a complex world. Whether talking about science, politics, finance or just the hidden patterns in Hollywood storylines, he reveals the invisible connections, unexpected stories and sometimes surprising revelations lurking in the sea of data that surrounds and swamps us.
