Introducing Small Multiples
Hello, just a quick note here to announce the opening of our new worker-owned cooperative. We’re called Small Multiples and we focus on graphic design and web development in support of social and economic justice.
At the time of writing, there are two of us. Rocket Lee is a web developer and user experience designer based in the San Francisco Bay Area who worked for seven years at Quilted prior to co-founding Small Multiples; they also worked briefly at Mirabot Technology Cooperative. Alexander Hage is a graphic designer based in Minnesota’s Twin Cities who worked previously at Golden Arrows, an art and design cooperative based in Boston and Philadelphia. Through Quilted and Golden Arrows, we collaborated closely for more than seven years. When both disbanded in early 2015, we decided it was the perfect time to start a new worker-cooperative that built on everything we’d learned so far and to create space for innovative and reimagined practices.
Our Work So Far
Since our start at the beginning of April, we’ve been busy working with clients in Philadelphia, Boston, Minneapolis, and Oakland.
Work With Us
At this young point in our company, we’re actively looking for clients, partners, and collaborators. Please let us know if you have any work that might be a good fit with us, or if there’s anyone you could spread the word to. You just might be someone who could help us get our business off to a phenomenal beginning.
What does Small Multiples mean? In words: “A small multiple is a series of similar graphs or charts using the same scale + axes, allowing them to be easily compared. It uses multiple views to show different partitions of a dataset. The term was popularized by Edward Tufte.” Or in pictures.
