Oliver Uberti is the co-author of two critically-acclaimed books of maps and graphics: Where the Animals Go and London: The Information Capital, each of which won the top British Cartographic Society Award for cartographic excellence. Previously, he was Senior Design Editor at National Geographic

When not writing books, Oliver specializes in book cover design, infographics, and branding. He takes on clients whose causes he believes in. He gets to know them closely and comes to view their missions as if they were his own. Then he asks his favorite question: “What if we?”
