In 2019, one thing is certain - #selfies will continue to rule the internet. In 2014 @moritz_stefaner & team documented the #data behind this art form, finding that #happy selfies (eyes open, mouth closed, no glasses) dominate. https://t.co/hd7wq90OAS #IIBAwards #rewindweek pic.twitter.com/vrB084fKNJ— Kantar IIB Awards (@infobeautyaward) January 11, 2019
Yesterday we shared a source for #artists to learn how to code- today, try this software that lets you build custom designs without ANY #code. You know what they say- there's always a tool for the job. #design #dataviz #IIBAwards #vizskillsweek @uwdata https://t.co/qU2OKsGi0F pic.twitter.com/BlwaVOvTdV— Kantar IIB Awards (@infobeautyaward) February 16, 2019

Last week saw a new storm event and increased flooding in Louisiana- the gulf coast is hugely vulnerable to #climatechange. We need to keep talking about #climate and #resilience. https://t.co/a10FkUPDWg #IIBAwards @BBVAData pic.twitter.com/lTCnED7j2Q— Kantar IIB Awards (@infobeautyaward) July 20, 2019
All the self-help gurus seem to agree: A strong routine = your best life.

How do you measure up??⠀ .⠀ "Creative Routines" by @info_we_trust, 2014 #IIBAwards. See more of his work at infowetrust.com
SHORTLISTED #IIBAwards 2019: Turning beautiful #data into an even more beautiful logo. Congrats to @DataVizSociety - it's harder than it looks!
