Eric Rodenbeck on visualization and running a studio

Dec 29, 2014

Eric Rodenbeck is the founder and creative director for Stamen. No doubt you’ve seen their stuff over the years, ranging from client work, art pieces, to open source projects. At Eyeo 2014, Rodenbeck talked about some of that work, but more significantly, what it’s like running such a studio in an environment where visualization needs and wants change often and quickly.

Love the honesty.

I don’t run a studio (despite what my inbox might have you believe), and I’m just one guy, but Rodenbeck’s sentiments felt familiar. If you want a career in any visualization-related field, you better keep up with the changes.
