    What we do

    About Us

    We’re a group of independent journalists who just love a good story. We’re dedicated to quality journalism and the craft of digital storytelling. While we specialise in data-driven and narrative journalism, we’re a multi-talented bunch able to harness decades of journalism skills, combining them with state-of-the-art programming and presentation to create stories for all sorts of screens. We initiate our own media projects, but we also offer our services to civil society organisations and corporate social responsibility projects with a story to tell.

    Our Initiatives

    Here we offer a selection of our work, just some of the projects we've worked on. For a fuller listing of our projects take a look at our portfolio section.


    Passmark makes schools data accessible so people can see whether South Africa's schools are up to standard.


    We're constantly working with data and experimenting with visualisations. Datablog is our home for these projects as well as guides on working with data.
