If you’re fascinated by visualising data and driven by numbers please get in touch! We love seeing how data can come to life in graphic form and via visual narratives (i.e. GOOD Magazine, Fast Company, Monocle, The Guardian).
Elkanodata is a creative, digital agency specialized in information design: Visual Communication, Interactive Design, and Motion Graphics. We look to transform information and data into high quality visual, interactive or animated experiences. As a designer you can expect to be creating interactive webs, infographics (print, digital or responsive), dashboards, visual reports and more.
We’re a young, energetic, international team and we love what we do, but we also have high expectations and are very demanding with the results.
