By ingeniously transforming statistical data into valuable, user-friendly resources, they make a range of global issues – from climate change to the Middle East – accessible to general readers, students and professionals alike.

Myriad sets a standard for quality, clarity, creativity and analysis. Our atlases are consistently well-reviewed and honoured with prestigious awards. They are also used by newspapers and magazines for value-added editorial. We have created bespoke thematic posters for a variety of publications, including the UK’s Independent, Ireland’s Sunday TribuneNew Scientist and Geographical Magazine.
