Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards

Last night we attended a glittering, entertaining, and informative evening in central London for the 'Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards'. The awards 'celebrate awesomeness in data visualisation around the world'.

Beep Studio has long been friends with author David McCandless, and contributed graphics (including images of viruses and dictators moustaches) to his bestselling book 'Information is Beautiful'. Since then the IIB empire has grown, with a website, a sequel, TED talks, posters, and masterclasses in data visualisation. We're thrilled to be collaborating with such a forward thinking group, and had a thrilling evening among talented folk.
