A Fresh Look at Energy Efficiency

The Philadelphia Energy Authority (PEA) is a municipal authority organized by the City of Philadelphia to help reduce energy costs, enhance energy efficiency, obtain clean, renewable and affordable energy supply, and reduce energy consumption. Maskar helped develop their first report and executive summary, A First Look: The General Fund, which examines current energy use, the history of how we got here and makes recommendations for future improvements.

Infographic Calendar(s)

It’s always a struggle to find a good end-of-year gift for our clients – we’ve made donations to good causes, sent cards, champagne or elaborately packaged thank-you gifts. Sometimes we’ve just thrown up our hands and done nothing (we still love you all, we promise).

Starting in 2009, we decided to go with a promotional calendar – no goofy cat photos, though*– this would be a calendar by enthusiastic infographic geeks. We chose topics we cared about, mostly with a Philadelphia focus, and explored different approaches to visualizing information – with maps, infographics and data-rich visualizations. Finally, something to give our parents that explains just what we do.

*We still have a cat calendar in us though.
