We are
information designers

... and we believe that understanding
precedes action and change.


We co-design with scientists and journalists, businesses and organisations, professionals and individuals who need to turn complex information into meaningful narratives, unique visualisations and understandable messages.


We run hands-on workshops for designers and non-designers, for scientists and journalists, for businesses and organizations who work in an environment that requires presenting information in effective and creative ways.


We are experienced and charismatic public speakers and we love sharing our projects in the field of information design and data visualisation in order to build a cross-disciplinary community.

Designing for Tuesday

As information designers how can we create ripples that last? Designing For Tuesday is a story about visualising data for lasting impact.

The inside story

The inside story of how scientists, designers, cognitive experts and communication specialists co-designed the key visualizations of what has been called the most important climate report of the 21st century.

A brief history of the 1.5°C target

Read our story on how we built and visualized the brief history of the 1.5C target together with Monica Bjermeland at Cicero


About risk literacy and how we perceive risk when visualised. On our flight home from a hot summer holiday in Sardinia, my daughter’s attention is caught by a visualisation in TIME magazine titled 'What are my risk factors?'

Our Medium posts: THE WATER WE EAT

Ten years ago I fell in love with the concept of virtual water and I could not imagine I was going to undertake a journey full of so many encounters.


We started InfoDesignLab because in the past 15 years we experienced how vital it is to design information in a way that strikes the right note in the mind of the viewer.
