The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation asked us to develop a multi-platform visualization to launch at ‘Contagion’, an event hosted at the London Science Museum. It would explain how global health has changed over time and raise awareness for ongoing health challenges.
This was a story about the whole world, but we placed users at the core of it. Using data going back over 100 years, we let people input their date of birth and see how much progress has been made in their lifetimes.
These visualizations had a lifetime of their own, first appearing at the Lates night at the Science Museum and then online at mosaicscience.com. This meant finding visual devices that worked whether they were on a phone or an exhibition screen.
We placed our global health stories against other recognisable moments in history. What’s happened since the Beatles recorded ‘ Let it Be’? Or since Neil Armstrong left his footprints on the moon?
Our team was there on the night to see people enjoy the exhibition first hand. Global Health Check was also shortlisted in the Information is Beautiful awards and received an honouree Webby for Best Health Website.
