Map Your Moves: Andrea Stranger and Michael Porter

The Brian Lehrer Show asked you to participate in the Map Your Moves project by telling us where you moved from and to and why in the past 10 years. Over 1600 listeners participated. Then, we asked you designer-types to try to make that information beautiful in whatever visual way you wanted. We got really impressive submissions, so we have invited each of the designers on the show to talk about their work. The first two to join us are Andrea Stranger and Michael Porter. They'll discuss how they made the Map Your Moves information beautiful and what they learned in the process.
