Europe’s New Migration

I was on holiday for a little bit, so apologies for the lack of content. But, now I am back for a little while. So here’s hoping life gets a bit more settled and content can be published more regularly.

Whilst I was on holiday, I only checked the news a few times and most of it seemed to be consumed by the migration/refugee crisis facing the European Union. While I could type away ad nauseam on the issue, the best way to engage you on the topic would be through a Washington Post map that details the different paths migrants/refugees use.

I am hoping that in the future I will find sufficient other charts and graphics others have made to comment on a very important issue.

I am a graphic designer who focuses on information design. My day job? I am the data visualisation manager for the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. (This blog is my something I do on my own time and does not represent the views of the Fed, blah blah blah legal stuff.) And with my main interest in information design—be it in the shape of clear charts, maps, diagrams, or wayfinding systems—I am fortunate that my day job focuses on data visualisation. Outside of work, I try to stay busy with personal design work. Away from the world of design, I enjoy cooking and reading and am interested in various subjects from history and geography to politics to science to the arts. And I allow all of them to influence my work.
