Meet Mona Chalabi
We’ve just discovered the world of Data Journalist Mona Chalabi, and we’re loving what we’re seeing. Mona crafts hand-drawn illustrations to make hard statistics more accessible and engaging, and to try and make people feel something about numbers.
Traditionally, data visualisation can be quite clinical and graphic, in a way that overstates the accuracy and certainty of the numbers. But our knowledge is always evolving, and data only shows the extent of we know so far. By hand-drawing the illustrations, Mona can add an element of humour and humility – she invites viewers to question the data that we often all too readily accept as fact.
