Block Pattern: Side-by-Side



Focillon is a French-based community initiative and a global team of academics & artists who want to make culture more accessible and decision-making more Humanities-centered.

“We have worked with Pykih for Data visualization project in the past so when we started Focillon, our first choice was to work with them again. The website required not only structuring and displaying content but also building map based searchable, filterable dashboard to make our content more discoverable. 10000ft dashboard and playlists played a very pivotal role in getting the website off the ground.

We love how Humane Club provides support through Basecamp. Our team gets the private space to add to-dos, upload content and chat. It makes the entire process a lot more easier.”
