Every year The Economist’s incredible Data and Research team collect worldly data in small side publication called World in Figures. Working on the Social team I was tasked with coming up with a way for us to quickly and distinctly make use of this gold-mine of data. As part of the overall social media refresh I designed a series of animated chart templates that could be updated and created easily and speedily with different chart options and colour-ways. The charts needed to be accessible to the wider Social team so the templates were designed with this in mind.





Making the templates usable for non-animators without having to worry about the design guidelines was important for the longevity of the designs and usage of them by the Social team.
