Speaker Jessica Bellamy(US)
- Motion Infographic designer and Founder of GRIDS
- Talk: Infographics for Social Change
Jessica tells visual stories using data and personal narratives. She started her design career working with non-profits and community groups to create compelling explainers that break down complex service and policy information. In 2015, she created a small design agency called GRIDS: The Grassroots Information Design. In 2017, she created a hands-on workshop called Infographics for Social Change: A Graphic Ally Hackathon, which she has given at several conferences and major universities (Carnegie Mellon, UCLA, and Yale). She is also the creator of the Infographic Wheel, a handheld design tool that helps creatives select a visual layout for any dataset.
Designers have an opportunity to use their talents to create and support mindful, authentic narratives featuring unconventional and underrepresented perspectives and faces.
