The Dutch Data Design label covers the freelance activities of Mirjam Leunissen, an Amsterdam-based data visualization and infographics specialist with a scientific background.
Currently, I spend most of my time at the Dutch national newspaper de Volkskrant, but in addition I also advise on, design and make informative data displays for the web and for print for a variety of customers, e.g. the Dutch government, academic institutions and companies.
Here are some examples of my interactive visualizations for the web: (the spending power predictions visualization won a silver medal at Malofiej 23; the visualization of the research collaborations of two Dutch hospitals was shortlisted for the Information is Beautiful Awards 2014 and the visualization of the network of influential people in The Netherlands was longlisted for the Information is Beautiful Awards 2015)
And here is an example of a data project in print:Open Access publishing, done for the OCW Ministry (more examples available upon request). Occasionally I will also make non-data driven displays, e.g. cover illustrations for scientific journals - view example.
Data visualizations and infographics help to understand and communicate all sorts of journalistic, corporate, governmental, educational and scientific data. A well-designed display provides unsurpassed insight into large data sets, complex processes or elaborate reports. Moreover, it does not only inform people very effectively, but also engages them in an eye-pleasing and (inter)active way.
Feel free to contact me and to discuss the options if you want to boost your scientific or strategic analysis, want to effectively share or market your knowledge, want to enhance your website or raise public awareness, or want to do something entirely different with data visualization.
