What We Do

Stamen's client work and the research projects we pursue present us with as broad a variety of design challenges as we could hope for: from providing live views of social networks as they happen to covering live bicycle races over the internet, from building collaborative applications for car designers to describing the lifetime output of an all-but-uncategorizable artist/architect.

While we use a wide range of techniques to help us understand this broad range of concerns, our response has most frequently taken two forms: mapping and data visualization.
