Start Date: July/August 2017
Salary: Competitive and flexible depending on experience
Contract: Full time
We’re looking for a Designer who can turn numbers into visuals and transform a potentially boring bar chart into an artful spiral plot (or whatever will tell the story in the clearest and most engaging way). Gorgeous maps and precise charts won’t be the only tools at your disposal. You’ll be free to use illustration, typography and all other visualisation skills in your arsenal to breathe life into our work and make interpreting our findings effortless and pleasurable for everyday audiences. While collaboration with an analyst and data journalist will be an integral part of the role, you’ll have a huge amount of freedom in the entire creative process, from coming up with original ideas, to planning and executing their production.
The perfect candidate for this role will have an affinity with smart data exploration/visualisation like Information is Beautiful, FiveThirtyEight, and Freakonomics.
