The concept-driven approach inverts the common practice of starting with data. Instead it focuses on developing a distinct, useful, smart question or concept to frame and ask of the data. This way of working yields different results, helps the critiquing and ‘debugging’ of charts, and is tool-agnostic, useable for many outputs: presentations, interactives, data-stories, apps, marketing materials etc.


These introductory level seminars are a mix of lecture & hands-on exercises with plenty of discussion.

David will present live, screen-sharing high quality visuals (naturally!) to explain techniques and creative processes which lead ‘beyond the bar chart’

Attendees will break into virtual breakout rooms to do creative exercises, and also do solo work.


In these fun intensives, attendees will directly learn:

» concepting & generation of solid, interesting ideas ripe for visualization

» creation, selection & execution of appropriate & effective charts

» designing and beautifying graphs & diagrams

and be broadly introduced to:

» how to use visualisation as a lens for communicating of ideas & stories

» the many new methods and approaches for visualising data

» the best current tools alongside optimal choices & practices

Useful for

» Translating written reports, research & messaging into visual graphics

» Understanding data journalism and story-telling with data

» Words and ideas people looking to translate concepts into design language

» Visual / design thinkers wanting to expand approaches to include data

» Data / code practitioners looking to improve aesthetics & conceptual prowess

What will I come away with?

Everyone leaves with their own datavizzes created on the day, a copy of the slide deck presented other resources shared during the day plus a video to watch back content over for up to 14 days after the event.

NB The video re-play included in your post event pack was recorded and edited from previous sessions, to retain all tuition and creative exercises. For personal privacy we have removed any sections where audience participation may have occurred.
