Presenting my work to new audiences is a key part of connecting with the broader design and data vis community. Sharing my work in a different context helps me to step back and look for the birds-eye view, which keeps me interested in my own day-to-day work, as well as creating opportunities for feedback and brainstorming that help to move my work in new directions.
