Visual stories in data

Luke Bacon, one of the Brunel designers participating at MEX, shared his selection: a TED talk by Hans Rosling exploring visual stories in data.

Luke comments: “Firstly, it is fascinating to see what someone can do with information, how they communicate it and explain it. Secondly, I think it highlights the importance of knowing what has happened in the past and how that should affect our attitudes and outlooks. And lastly, I am very keen to see more focus on poverty when it comes to sharing information.”

The MEX blog is featuring ideas, images and videos selected by the designers at Brunel University in the build-up to the next MEX event on 30th November/1st December 2011.

Each breakout team at MEX is supported by a pair of Brunel designers, who work with the team’s facilitator to inject new thoughts and help the group to visualise ideas for their final presentation. The involvement of Brunel’s designers continues a thriving partnership between MEX and Brunel, which has seen the students contributing their design skills and fresh creative spirit to several previous MEX events, while building relationships with and learning from the industry pioneers in the MEX community.

The Brunel designers were asked to share a single item which has been inspirational to them, with no limitation on the industry it was sourced from or its subject matter.
