The Design Difference: Bye, Bye Boring Statistics! Join our tribe of thinkers & creatives in Maputo
The intern/opportunist will work with Visualst, a public-interest data design firm based in Maputo, on 3-4 local projects. Visualst is the first locally-based collective focused on creating products at the intersection between data, social development, design, and art. The intern/opportunist will work as a part of a small team of data scientists, global health technicians, and design practitioners to co-create products that are graphically compelling and true to the data that underlies them. One of our main projects is as a learning partner to JOBA Mozambique, helping to aggregate, distill, analyze, and present program and evaluation data of the largest co-funded PPP for vocational training in Southern Africa (jobamoz.org). We also assume a similar role for a pilot program on improving family planning nationally. Second, the intern will also gain experience in user interface (UI) and information design by helping to develop a revamped site and communication system with UX, a social technology firm. Finally, the intern will help manage the SDG data inputs and "framing" of information for art collectives (artists paired with social organizations) to create artwork for the forthcoming Art is Data Exhibits/Events in June & October 2019.
