Last week marked the final opportunity to get involved in helping us publish our second ever Visual Capitalist coffee table book, “Signals”!
Here is the campaign video we released on Kickstarter:
We are happy to announce the book made and exceeded its funding goal, and is now going ahead. Thank you to everyone who supported the campaign!
For those that missed out, there is still an opportunity to support us as we create the book. To do this, you can pre-order the book from the Visual Capitalist Store.
We’re excited to get started — thanks again for your help!

— Review of our first book, “Visualizing Change”
Introducing “Signals”, a New Book Concept from Visual Capitalist
Pledge before March 12th, 2020 to help us fund the book, and to join us behind-the-scenes on our new and exciting journey.
The world is being bombarded with more and more information.
But today’s key decision makers and investors don’t want to receive more information, they want to achieve more understanding.
Signals from Noise
This month, Visual Capitalist is excited to announce our newest book endeavor, “Signals: Charting the New Direction of the Global Economy”
We envision “Signals” as a beautiful hardcover book that will be built from scratch with one specific aim: using our data-driven approach to show simple and clear takeaways on the trends that will define the next decade of the global economy.
Like our last book, we will be publishing it independently — and we need your help.
Read all about the “Signals” concept on our newly-launched Kickstarter page, where you can pre-order the book and join us on our latest journey.
Deadline for pledges: March 12th, 2020.
Pledge now before it’s too late!
PS – By pledging on Kickstarter above, you can get access to all kinds of goodies, such as discounted subscriptions to VC+, as well as exclusive branded versions of the book.
