World Economic Forum
Information design and consulting for global issues
I am a long-term consultant for the World Economic Forum. My tasks range from strategic consultations to the design of interactive information visualization and print graphics.
Global risk reports
Each year, the world economic forum asks hundreds of experts about their perception of future important risks. The Risk Interconnection Map visualizes the topology resulting from the experts' responses how these risks relate to and influence each other. For calculating the maps, I use a custom-made physical simulation to have full layout control.
Some of the static graphics from various reports over the last ten years:

The online versions of the graphic usually allow a high degree of explorability.
