Monthly Archives: April 2013

Living Large

Last week, I had the pleasure of doing the graphic recording at the Jour Fixe – Medien und Entwicklung 2013, which took place in the Märchenhütte in Berlin. It was the first time I did a live visualization on large (100x200cm) cardboard panels, so I was quite excited, and keen to see the results.

I was also interested to see people’s reactions, but in the end I was too focused on what I was doing to look around much. However, the feedback I received afterwards was overwhelmingly positive.

I am pleased with the results, although I would have preferred the style to be a bit more consistent.

In Print

I am happy to announce that two of my illustrations were used for MICT‘s newest print publications. Number one is MICT’s print newsletter for April 2013, featuring my map of the Libyan media landscape (based on research by Anja Wollenberg). Number two is the first print edition of correspondents.org, which was launched last week at the Jour Fixe Medien und Entwicklung, and can be purchased in the MICT shop. I contributed a map of goods smuggled between Libya, Egypt and Tunisia, and their neighboring countries.

Exercises in Style

At a recent conference on ICTs and democracy promotion at Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (German Development Institute), I decided to try something new, and alternate between a fat and a skinny marker. At first, I wasn’t comfortable with it at all, but I kept going anyway. After a while, it started to feel natural. Looking at the complete set, I am actually very happy with the result. DIE Conference: Democracy Promotion vs. Technology  Exports
