Hi! I’m Andrea Robertson.

I use information design – graphics, illustration, and data visualization – to help nonprofits and mission-driven organizations communicate complex ideas to the world.

After more than 10 years working in science communication and environmental nonprofits, I saw a need for better data tools in the organizations that are doing so much good in our world.

I founded Hypsypops to meet this need, providing data analysis, data visualization, and communication services and education for organizations large and small.
