Working at

Explained is a visual data storytelling studio that helps organizations, newsrooms and other businesses communicate their data to their audience visually and inclusively. What: Currently, media and businesses communicate and inform their audience primarily through video, audio, or text.  These methods however have limitations when communicating data and make data inaccessible. How: We use visual data storytelling to understand complex data and turn it into clear, engaging, actionable insights and visually appealing stories. We use inclusive techniques to make our stories accessible and include a wider audience. Why: We understand the world best when it's explained visually.  Understanding today's world starts with understanding data. Globally, one in four people has some form of vision impairment that makes it difficult to understand the current communication formats. We believe in visual storytelling and are experts in this niche field. We have created many projects on different topics and have communicated them successfully with our audience. We have also built a community around visual data storytelling.
