What We Did in 2011

2011 was the year data visualization and custom mapping moved firmly  into the mainstream of digital design work, and our client roster at  least partially reflects this trend. We also saw two major museums  recognize this kind of work, signaling a growing understanding that this  work is moving from the realms of research into genre. Open source projects continued to be a major source of interest and value for our projects,  client-facing and otherwise. And we took two first quiet steps into  product design based on open data, both directly supporting the efforts  of the mapping volunteers at Open Street Map, whose efforts are increasingly being seen as a  reliable alternative to propietary geographic solutions. This kind of effort, where we can  do good and earn money at the same time, is core to the studio’s  practice and I’m delighted to be able to still be in a position to  support it, ten years on.

Do the G8 and EU Keep their Commitments for Global Development?The “2011 DATA Report” provides a final verdict on the commitments that  were made by the G8 and EU to sub-Saharan Africa in 2005, and which were  due in 2010. As shown in the interactive version of the report, developed by Stamen Design,  the key findings show that despite historic increases and remarkable  results over the past decade, donors still fell short of meeting their  promises.
