Welcome to DOT

The storytelling data company. We create and market data products and undertake data service assignments across the globe.

Simple

At DOT we strive to make the complex world of data simple. Data, and data companies, have for too long drowned people in volume in order to sound smart. To us, the real smarts are to make and express data in the simplest way possible.

Smart

At DOT the only data we are interested in is the data that helps clients win. That to us is smart. Therefore, the products we create use the smartest data from any source we can get hold of and the smartest people from a variety of backgrounds provide the services.

Beautiful

People are attracted to beauty, so at DOT we strive to present data in the most beautiful possible way so that everyone can see, understand and get excited about data and get on with winning.

People are what make

DOT different.

We all come from one of two worlds. Some of us are data scientists, some of us are creative storytellers. The magic of DOT is in the collision between the two.
