Jose Duarte is a colombian designer, magister in comunication and Ledfish co-founder, an information design company. Unlike most of the infographics we see today, his data visualizations aren’t high-quality computer-aided; they’re handmade using simple items like balloons, tape and rubber balls. Using ordinary materials he has experimented with various visualization techniques from area charts to bubble graphs and ven diagrams in diverse scenarios as business, art, street interventions and even astronomy.

Now, He is exploring simple ways to visualize information quickly and easily and his work - particularly the Handmade visualization toolkit- has inspired and encoraged people to aproximate for the first time to data visualization.

His work has been published by Gestalten’s book Visual Storytelling and has appeared in world wide specialized magazines and blogs as Owni, Marie Claire, infoaesthetics, brainpickings and Co.Design among others.
