Hi, I'm Severino Ribecca, a freelance designer, consultant and trainer.

Please read below to find out more about myself and what I can offer.

My specialty and passion are in data visualisation and information design. I've been freelancing since 2012, where I have worked on a number of multi-disciplined design projects.

I believe data visualisation to be an important tool to educate and inform people on complex subjects. By making information more visual, people can understand a difficult topic a lot quicker than reading through large paragraphs of text or massive spreadsheets.

Aside from freelancing, I also spend much of my time researching and writing about data visualisation. In particular, the different types of information visualisation techniques, how they work, and what makes them useful. Most of my writing can be found on my other website, The Data Visualisation Catalogue, which contains both a library of different visualisation techniques and a blog.

Lately, I have also moved into the realm of teaching, providing training on data visualisation and on Adobe software.
