Clarity is what drives the designers at DataTonic.
We're a nimble team of two detail-obsessed graphic designers with more than 15 years of experience making information and data easy to understand. We started our company because we saw that there are too many organizations out there with great stories to tell who are intimidated by design and social media—who think that it's too complex or too expensive to afford. But it doesn't have to be that way!
When you work with us, you’ll find that we are easy to work with, fast but not sloppy, obsessed with accuracy and detail... and nice.
Your reputation is ours. We absorb your voice, your mission, and your audience. We’re flexible—we’ll go above and beyond to get it right for you because we love what we do and we know that you’ll come back the next time. We won't take forever to finish, we won't make you feel stupid if you don't understand something, and we won't charge you a million dollars.
What makes us different?
In our past lives, we’ve designed and written a ton of stuff. But we started this company to do the thing we’re passionate about—making things clear. That means that we’re at the intersection of design and writing—content. Evan is a designer with more than a decade of experience creating everything from infographics and websites to magazine layouts. Carla is a designer, writer, and digital strategist—equally comfortable writing marketing copy, researching hashtags, producing blogs, or designing infographics. Together, we see the whole story and can help you get it right. (Did we mention how nice we are?)
Here’s what we do
We design infographics.
Making data visual and clear requires more than a color palette and an eager designer—it requires designers who are thinkers willing to acquire a deep understanding of the data, the story, and the audience’s ability and willingness to understand that story. At DataTonic, we stand at the intersection of data, design, and narrative. If you work with us, we’ll help you put that together to create effective infographics that make your data visually engaging and easy to understand.
We do other stuff, too.
We love infographics, but we also take on branding and design projects. We design logos, social media graphics, websites, and tons of printed publications (including research reports, annual reports, and magazines). We can help you tackle social media projects and digital campaigns, from writing to design.
Carla is a DC-based designer and blogger on dataviz and education. Aside from designing and explaining things to make them more clear, she does other stuff, like taking photographs of rusted things for her tumblr, riding her orange bike, coaching her little kid’s soccer team, worshipping FC Barcelona, and drinking unlimited quantities of spinach smoothies. She writes about other things, too, including sporadic Medium articles. Catch her dataviz posts on Twitter. She tries to sneak as much orange into her projects as she can before Evan catches on.
Evan is an award-winning designer and creative director. Aside from creating infographics and leading design for everything from digital campaigns to corporate branding, he is a huge Baltimore Ravens fan and loves all things zombie-related. He is the first to own any new Apple product and is always up to speed on the latest software, technology, and gadgets.
