About this class

Learn about the principles that are the foundation of good data design. We'll discuss why we visualize data in the first place, the way that humans interpret visual information, the fundamental elements that we use to encode data and importantly how we can use color effectively to draw attention to the most important parts of our visual story.

Nearly every one of us would benefit from knowing how to make more compelling and attractive data visualizations. Learning design principles will allow you to make better decisions about which charts you use with different types of data and how to design those chart to most effectively convey your story. These skills are tool-agnostic and would be applicable whether you're designing data visualizations in Excel, Tableau, a programming language like R or D3.js, or BI and Reporting Tools like Qlikview, SAP Business Objects.

Takeaways

-Understand how visual perception works and how you can harness it to make more effective presentations of data. -Learn the fundamental visual encoding elements that every data visualization uses to effectively convey information -Explore the use of color in data graphics and how appropriate and judicious decisions about which and how much color to use will take your visualizations to the next level
