Christine P'ng

Information designer & Biomedical communicator

My name is Christine, and I’m a designer. I love thinking about how people perceive visuals. What I really care about is conveying information in ways that are both accurate and visually compelling. In particular, I’m excited to do this by creating data visualizations.

I'm currently the Information Design Lead at Cancer Care Ontario, where I work across analytics teams to create effective and efficient visualizations for the healthcare system. In addition to creating my own designs, I give lectures and workshops on data visualization, and develop templates and guidelines to help others create visuals.

I've explored a range of methods for visually communicating information. During my Masters of Science in Biomedical Communications at the University of Toronto, I used everything from carbon dust illustrations to web-based narratives to convey information for a range of projects, from medical legal cases to surgical procedures to scientific findings. Regardless of medium, my focus remains on finding ways to clearly and effectively communicate information to my audience.

If you have an infomation or biomedical visualization challenge to solve, or are looking for someone to speak or teach on information design, send me a message and I'll be in touch!
