Speaking for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation at ‘The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria’ replenishment conference, Bill Gates needed to tell the story of how the Fund’s investment has improved healthcare around the world.

We worked with the speech writer at the Foundation to identify the key story points that needed visualising. We then storyboarded the presentation alongside the script, before designing the information graphics themselves. These were then turned into animations for the final presentation.

My contribution
I designed the data visualisation devices and worked with an animator to translate these into motion graphics. As part of the team I helped conceptualise different device types, before executing the final solutions in Adobe Illustrator.
