Rachel Binx is a data visualizer and designer currently working at Netflix. At one point, she worked on a project called Meshu, which creates clothing accessories based on locations that a person marks. They’re meant to be reminders of trips or places from home. The location data is interpreted through Mapzen and comes from OpenStreetMaps.
After attending Santa Clara University for Mathematics and Art History, Binx worked at Mapzen, NASAJPL, and Stamen Design, before landing at Netflix. She works to produce physical objects or computational visualizations out of data that is meaningful to each person. Binx’s dedication to making data concrete and beautiful to keep its meaning is so inspiring to me!
