How do you create effective, interesting and, above all, useful data-visualizations and infographics?

In the age of info overload, visualization of data, information and knowledge has incredible potential to help us quickly understand, navigate and find meaning.

In this rare virtual workshop, David McCandless, founder of Information is Beautiful, shares his concept-driven process and method for creating successful visualizations, giving you a chance to ask questions and get feedback on your work.

What will you learn?

In a one-day workshop, attendees will specifically learn:

» concepting and the generation of good, interesting ideas ripe for visualization

» creating, selecting and executing appropriate and effective charts and visualisations

» designing and beautifying charts and diagrams

Be broadly introduced to:

» how to use dataviz as a new lens for communication of ideas and stories

» the many methods and approaches for visualising data

» a playful creative approach to data, based on exploration and discovery, for better results

» how to combine design-thinking and statistical rigour without compromising either

What’s the style of the workshop?

Expect a fun, informative virtual experience that is interactive and hands-on: pens, paper, sketching, sharing etc. All with a solid underpinning of theory and best practice.

David will present live, screen-share and take questions & host discussion with up to 100 people.

2-3 person exercises will take place in virtual breakout rooms.

This workshop would be useful if you’re:

» wishing to translate written reports, research and messaging into impactful visual form

» wanting to better understand the practice of data journalism and storytelling with data

» needing to succinctly communicate issues or data points to specific audiences

» a “words and ideas” person looking to translate your concepts into design language

» a “visual / design thinker” wanting to expand your approach to include data

» a “data / code” person looking to improve aesthetics and conceptual prowess

What will I come away with?

Everyone leaves with their own datavizzes created on the day and a copy of the slide deck presented.

» Some testimonials from past attendees
