What we do

Data Visualisation

We specialise in data visualisation and information design,  providing engaging insight into data and complex information. We create interactive applications, infographics, animations and 3-dimensional experiences for exhibits and events.

Data Analysis

We process, clean, mine, crunch and analyse data of any size, from any source. We design bespoke algorithms and use cutting edge technologies in machine learning, natural language processing and spatial analysis.

Mapping and Spatial Analysis

We specialise in spatial analysis and mapping of data of any size. We process, analyse and build systems and visualisations using geographical data, to reveal trends and patterns as interactive maps, dashboards and animated experiences.

Web Development

We create full websites, microsites and integrate stand alone products into existing websites. We provide full-stack development from backend to frontend, with a particular focus on sustainable data-driven projects (requiring data updates) and real-time systems.

Experience Design

Our digital work often is often developed in conjunction with a 3D physical design to create immersive experiences in museums, at events or corporate environments. We create highly interactive, engaging experiences using 3d physical design combined with a live data experience to engage audiences, increase dwell times and stimulate discussion and debate.

Interaction Design

We consider interaction design the touch of magic that brings data to life. Whether the output of our work is web based or an installation, interaction design plays a key part in our process and enhances the ability of our projects to engage and delight audiences, increasing dwell times and promoting dissemination.
