Increase brand awareness and drive online engagement. Increase web traffic by 30 per cent and engagement for content via social channels by 20 per cent.


We wanted to illustrate that we all suffer from data overload, including emails, tweets, world news, spreadsheets, etc. But to show that if data is presented to us visually in maps, it is easier to digest.

The Data Overload campaign encourages business executives to seek new ways to present information, such as visual mapping.
