Who we are

 

What does “small multiples” mean?

 

For us, being Small Multiples means simultaneously looking at the bigger picture and the smaller parts.

The term "small multiples" comes from information design guru Edward Tufte. Small multiples is the ordering of many similar things together to allow for comparison of both similarities and differences. Just take a look at the cover of Tufte's Envisioning Information, 1990 for an example.

Small multiples means highlighting trends in data. It means celebrating diversity. It means connecting individuals with the whole. It means applying patterns and reducing redundancy in projects.
