Wesley Grubbs illustrates how TIME is a variable for his projects at Pitch Interactive. Through visualizations ranging from California’s drought situation to resume content for the McKnight Foundation, Wesley creates new language by compressing vast amounts of data into limited space. The effect of drone strikes on civilians in Northern Pakistan is one of Wesley’s passion projects outside the client realm. It’s a great example of artist going activist to educate masses.
