Our Past Design Work

pombot - A slackbot for time management



As we are often on teams that are not co-located, our product team had first hand experience with the communication challenges involved in synchronous or even asynchronous remote collaboration. We wanted a way to share what we were working on and feel like we were in the same space as each other (even if that just meant headspace).

New America

Bocoup worked with Measurement Lab, a partnership between New America’s Open Technology Institute, Google Open Source Research, Princeton University’s PlanetLab and other supporting partners, to transform, visualize and broaden access to the results of hundreds of millions of network diagnostic tests from around the globe.

The resulting web application enables clinics to improve efficiency while providing more informed, higher quality service for their patients.

Council for Economic Education, Learning Activities

Council for Economic Education

We worked with the Council for Economic Education to build interactive classroom activities around economic concepts. These enhanced activities are designed to allow teachers to make better use of instructional time, help students to explore cause-and-effect relationships between variables, and increase collaboration and active learning.

OpenVis Conf Design


The Bocoup design team established an original and evocative visual vocabulary and branding that appeal to a discerning audience of data visualization practitioners. The team designed a versatile logo, look-and-feel, creative swag, and interactive experiences to highlight the unique elements of each iteration of OpenVis Conf. Design has helped OpenVis Conf grow and evolve each year as a conference known for creative, thoughtful exploration of the frontiers of open data visualization.
