We’re the Quartz reporters who analyzed Google Quick, Draw! data to find out how different countries draw shapes, and what that shows about how culture shapes our instincts. Ask Us Anything!
Hi, we’re Nikhil Sonnad and Thu-Huong Ha, the reporters who did this analysis of the public database from Google’s Quick, Draw! game. We compared how people draw basic shapes around the world and found that the way people draw a simple circle is linked to geography and cultural upbringing, developmental psychology and trends in education. You had a lot of questions for us about what this means for you, how we compiled data, and plenty more. We want to answer as many as we can. Ask us anything!
