Documenting the process - Data Visualisation Designer Nadieh Bremer

Read more

Nadieh was working full-time when she launched a personal project with a friend. They documented the process closely, sharing in-depth blog posts that explained the hows and whys behind their decisions. Six months later, Google reached out to them and became a first client. And so Nadieh’s freelance story begins.

She talked to friends, read books, got an accountant and started putting herself out there. She kept sharing those in-depth blog posts and soon started speaking at events.

“I’m not a person that does sales,” Nadia says. Instead, she shows what she can do and hopes that people who like it will get in touch.

And it’s working for her this far. Tune in to hear her story.

Data Storytelling: How to Make Your Data Visualizations More Effective w/ Nadieh Bremer

Read more

We had a chance to talk with Nadieh Bremer about the steps to creating effective data visualizations to tell better stories.

After graduating as an astronomer from Leiden University, Nadieh Bremer became a data scientist finding insights in the vast amounts of data that are hidden within many companies. It took a few years, but she eventually figured out that she loved the visualization of the data and insights even more than the analysis itself. Since then she’s been focusing on and experimenting with the more creative side of data visualization.

In this episode Moritz meets Nadieh Bremer and Shirley Wu for a face-to-face episode in Berlin.

Nadieh and Shirley recently paired up to create Data Sketches, a twelve-month collaboration. Each month they choose a topic and develop a visualization on their theme.

One nice aspect of the project is that they keep track of their entire development process, including the steps they followed to prepare the data, sketch the ideas, and create the final visualizations.

On the show we talk about the organization of the projects, some favorite visualizations from the year, the partnership between the collaborators, and how they balance Data Sketches with their freelancing work.
