The past year has been action-packed here at Fathom. We gave numerous talks, hosted a great collection of visitors, and launched one of our largest projects to date.
2015 marks year six for Fathom, and it has been a big one. Over the past twelve months we’ve given talks at Internet Week, Eyeo, Williams College, The World Bank, Tufts, the Visualized Conference, PopTech, SATE, the MIT Media Lab, and Olin College.
Girls Who Code and Olin College came to visit and learn about Fathom, Processing, and how we work.
We launched one of our largest projects to date, No Ceilings, and showcased it at this year’s Clinton Global Initiative as well as one of their partnered events with Self Magazine.

We also launched a piece on Animal Trade with National Geographic, a series of Watch Faces for your Android Wear, and a 2.0 version of World Bank India.
We were even able to launch a few side projects of our own that looked at the composition of Jaws, the poetic nature of U.S. city names, and we redesigned Ben’s The Preservation of Favoured Traces into a set of prints.
We visited Salem to talk design, technology and data at DeSoFa.
And when we were done trampling around Salem, we snuck in some time to teach Python, celebrate Tau and learn about shaders.
All in all it was a great year, and we’re looking forward to the next. See you in 2016!
