BBC Data Visualisation

The BBC approached me to design the annual External Spend report for the Future Media division, a document which has been released to the public every year since 2007. This year, however, the team was looking for new ways to present this complex data using graphic design and a variety of charts and tables.

This in-depth piece of work required close liaison with the BBC team to ensure that all data and annotations were consistent, the data absolutely correct and presented in a manner which was clear to understand, even to the untrained eye. I used a mix of bar graphs, tables, scaled shapes and colour-coded maps to present the findings of the research.

This document was presented and circulated internally and made available to the public. Download the full report at www.bbc.co.uk/commissioning website.
