TEDxNASA - Oliver Uberti - Smash The Design Button

The design process begins and ends with research -- so he shares an office with a human skeleton. Oliver Uberti is a visual journalist and designer who dabbles in maps, infographics and words. He is a Design Editor at National Geographic magazine. On a given day at Geographic, Uberti says he may be found painting with crude oil, charting man's migration from Africa, drawing Stonehenge, counting jelly beans or directing a photo shoot of highway litter. He's drawn to images that make him feel something -- joy, sorrow, surprise or wonder. Uberti writes a blog titled The Process, the stories behind National Geographic's award- winning art, maps and designs. Here he answers the oft-asked question "How did they do that?" About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
