From the tools we use to the types of projects we like to pursue, we covered all the bases of our work during the visit. Katy chatted about projects like translating complex budget information into simplified input/output graphics for T4MA; the interwoven process of data journalism, design, and development for Connected China; and her latest project redesigning child health records for both the digital and print world. Terrence also described our work with Thomson Reuters on global environmental and social governance policies, and his mapping project that played with the tension between geographic integrity and real-world navigability. As we briefed the students on the importance of documenting our process, they also got a glimpse of our careers in hand modeling.
All in all it was a great morning, and we were glad to have the BU students in to mix things up. Best of luck to all of you, and we hope you come back around this time in 2014!
