Truth & beauty: telling stories with data


Life’s A Beach

The world has got better at data visualisation, but when it comes to data storytelling most companies and publishers don’t do much beyond dropping charts into text articles or PowerPoints.

This talk will draw on Duncan’s experience innovating with interactive data storytelling first through bespoke projects for customers such as the Guardian and Google, and later through the self-service data storytelling tool Flourish.

Duncan will be joined by Simona Fautre from Moody’s, who will show some examples of how Moody’s have pushed the boundaries of data storytelling, including through the use of Flourish.
