Description

Learn how to transform data into beautiful infographics at this hands-on workshop with our data visualisation experts Adam Frost and Tobias Sturt.

Whether you’re working on a presentation, a website or teaching materials, nothing tells a complex story faster than an infographic. This intensive course gives you everything you need to create memorable static and interactive infographics. You’ll learn how to find data and tailor it to your audience, as well as how to create maximum impact with your design.

Led by Tobias Sturt and Adam Frost from Add Two Digital, a specialist data visualisation agency, this fantastic class comprises a series of lectures and workshops, plus opportunities to get expert feedback on your work. Book your place now – and spend the day learning how to present complex information simply, elegantly and beautifully.
