Annual report maps for Bloomberg Philanthropies

One of the world’s largest data-driven charities uses our maps to measure and communicate its impact in closing coal plants, fighting tobacco lobbies and improving public health outcomes around the world.

Working closely with program managers and communications staff, we turn raw data into engaging maps for Bloomberg Philanthropies’ public-facing and internal reports.

Event Graphics for Bloomberg

To accompany Bloomberg Philanthropies’ launch of the Stopping Tobacco Organizations and Products (STOP) program at the 2018 World Conference on Tobacco or Health, we provided a giant map of their tobacco control efforts.

We partnered with Schema Design to make wall-sized animated maps for the 2019 Bloomberg New Economy Forum. Working with Schema and Bloomberg, we produced engaging visualizations on urban growth for the executives and media outlets in attendance.

“Evan Applegate is much more than a mapmaker—he is one of the most clever and self-motivated graphics editors I have had the pleasure of working with. A good data visualizer can handle the what, where and when questions, but Evan is gifted with the the why questions, which are often much more interesting.”
