The Economist

World In Figures

We helped The Economist digitise their popular annual pocket guide ’World In Figures’ into a subscription-driven native App.

One of the Economist’s popular publications is their annual pocket guide ‘World in Figures’. The data used in the book had also been available on a native iOS App which had been rendered obsolete through subsequent iOS updates.

Working with a variety of stakeholders across The Economist Group, we planned, designed and developed an entirely new version of the App launching it across multiple platforms - iOS, Android (mobile & tablet) and the Web.

Loosely based on the original concept, the new version of the App included a host of functional, technical, user experience and design improvements.

Launched early 2015 the new ’World in Figures’ App allows users to explore, compare and test their knowledge on a vast amount of indices and data points.
