In the last few years Mohamad Waked has emerged as a most promising and creative visualization designer. His approach is unique, combining the journalistic, the illustrative, and the automated and programmatic. His projects merge handcrafted drawings with intricate graphs, charts, and maps, woven into narratives about topics both important or lighthearted.

Mohamad consistently demonstrates he is a data visualisation designer and developer of the highest calibre. His work always thrills me with its imaginative aesthetics, smart technical execution and, most of all, the fact it is always analytically useful. He delivers the form and the function, and that’s so important!
Mohamad has proven again and again that he can bring data and beauty together to shine a light on immensely important topics. His unique style and perspective is a gift to the data visualization community and beyond.
In tech, we call unicorns those with a broad skill set. Mohamad Waked is, without a doubt, one of these rare specimens. He creates and designs stunning visualizations, brings them to life with code, and makes them relatable with delightful storytelling. And most importantly, his professionalism makes being in contact with him always a pleasure.
