7 & 8 September, 8.30am–12.30pm
Dataviz and infographic storytelling are fast-evolving graphic languages that are transforming design, data journalism and presentations. This online workshop provides an introduction to data visualisation’s potential as a storytelling medium as well as the principles behind the construction of effective and compelling visual displays of information.
The content is delivered through a mix of teaching, discussion, and exercises across two half-day workshops on consecutive days. Attendees will work independently and in groups to address briefs with original visual solutions. Designers, developers and those working with designers and developers who seeking a deeper understanding of data-driven visual solutions should attend.
