Nate, Josh, and team set out a few years ago to make data visualization a focus areas in Accenture Technology Labs, the R&D arm of Accenture. From there, visualization has become a key part of the analytic and big data strategy for Accenture as a whole.
They started by building open source, publicly available visualization, which quickly drew media attention, and sales leads for the firm. As the demand for improving the data visualization abilities within the firm grew, the need for a standard of design, data visual quality, and functionality was obvious.
Over the last year, the team has put together a visual literacy curriculum, a community of practice, and a workshop around making data visualization more effective. In addition, data visualization has become the main component of new cutting edge workshop programs centering around non-linear story telling and interactivity. Learn how Accenture is revolutionizing analytics and big data, with a concept that has been around since the beginning of time, story telling, with the added power of data visualization.

Industrial and UX designer who believes data should be both insightful and beautiful. When not buried under post-it notes or tangled in wireframes, he is probably tinkering with a 3D printer or out wandering with a camera.
I am a multidisciplinary interaction designer, currently researching visual literacy and applying its fundamental principles to data visualization in the Accenture Technology Labs. I love to design engaging, beautiful experiences – from interactive, experimental interfaces to everyday work tools – that enhance people’s lives. I am an artistic inventor who designs in the spirit of playfulness, observation, intuition and joy.
