Oliver Uberti is a former senior design editor for National Geographic and 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.
For their work on these atlases, Oliver and geographer James Cheshire were awarded the Corlis Benefideo Award for Imaginative Cartography by the North American Cartographic Information Society. Oliver's latest collaboration, Notes from a Public Typewriter, will be published by Hachette in March 2018.
When not writing books, Oliver designs book covers, infographics, and branding. He takes on clients whose causes he believes in. He gets to know clients closely and comes to view their visions as if they were his own. Then he asks his favorite question: “What if we?”
