Hi! My name is Lisa. ->profile pic Lisa
I create, talk & write about data vis, currently for Datawrapper in Berlin. Here I show what I've worked on in the past few years.



Selected Articles

"To understand something, write about it," they say. I'm curious. So I started writing: first on my personal blog, mostly about data vis when I got into the field around 2014. There was so much to learn! Since November 2017, I get paid by Datawrapper to do just that: Figuring things out, and taking you all on a tour with me. These are my best articles from both eras:


Selected Talks

Talks let me combine images (slides) and text (my speech) in a more tension-building, direct way than blog posts. I taught data vis at different universites and have given general data vis workshops over the years – but here you can find the talks I used as an excuse to research a completely new question:


Selected Projects

Before delving into data vis, I studied print design for six years. These are some of older student works (still data vis related-ish), and newer ones I've created for newsrooms or my blog. You can also find some charts I've created during my time at Datawrapper:
