Duncan Geere

Based in Gothenburg, Sweden, Duncan Geere is an information designer interested in climate and the environment. He’s worked for organizations like Wired, Information is Beautiful, Project Drawdown, Nesta, the Gates Foundation, and BBC Wildlife magazine.

His first paycheck: “In the early ‘90s, my grandmother held a fundraiser in her garden. I was 7 years old, and had finished building a huge Lego house, so I gave tours of it in return for a small fee. No one told me that the money was supposed to go to charity, so I kept it! My family still tease me about my mercantilism to this day.”
