Data that turns heads: Eric Rodenbeck of Stamen Design on making data trendy

Data that turns heads: Eric Rodenbeck of Stamen Design on making data trendy

Architecture school drop out Eric Rodenbeck of Stamen Design has an impeccable ability to transform raw data into something of an interactive and visual feast. In our latest video interview from We Can Create, Rodenbeck explains how his team, made up of a high school drop out, a cognitive science major, a few artists and a few trained cartographers, goes about creating compelling data visualisation. He also tells us why the Rumpus Room’s Tomas Roope, who also spoke at the event, is his “hero”.
