We Create

We create tools, visualizations, and data that communicate, engage, and impact society.

Engaging audiences is more than just building a fancy website or graphic. We build tools that solve real-world problems by transforming data into engaging media that communicates. Be it infographics, interactive and exploratory data-driven web applications, video, mixed media storytelling, and more, the tool should allow organizations to achieve their objectives by communicating messages properly.

Politics in Numbers: a new data portal about political party finances in Georgia

As 2016 is an election year in Georgia, we thought it was time to make political party finances transparent and accessible for Georgian voters prior to the elections. As a US State Department exchange program alumna, I was eligible to apply for a grant for Digital Communication Network Program participants. With my fellow program participant, Keti Bojgua from TV Imedi, I decided to apply JumpStart’s experience in data communication and visualization to open up important data stored in reports and various data-files about Georgian politics.

Coloring Communication with Data

On Tuesday 28th of January, JumpStart Georgia will be hosting an exciting all-day event ‘Coloring Communication with Data’ at the Europe House in central Tbilisi. At JumpStart Georgia, we believe that visualizing data is the key to effective communication. Visualizations can help to strengthen the connections between raw data and the information and messages your data contains. The way data is framed and presented visually can help sway decision makers and other target audiences in the right direction by giving weight and clarity to your argument.
