David McCandless is a London-based author, data-journalist and information designer, working across print, advertising, TV and web.
Recently he has championed the use of infographics and data visualisations to explore new directions for journalism and design - and to discover new patterns and stories in the seas of data swamping and surrounding us.
His information design work has appeared in over forty publications internationally including The Guardian, Wired and Die Zeit. His commercial clients include GE, Google, and the United Nations. An increasingly popular public speaker, he has spoken at TED Global and over forty international conferences.

In an age of high-speed living and info overload, visualised information has incredible potential to help us quickly understand, navigate and find meaning in a complex world.
