About This Workshop

Displaying information in a clear and compelling way is a valuable asset for any marketing manager, PR professional, entrepreneur, or anyone needing to give context to numbers. In this class, you’ll learn the essential elements of a successful infographic and how to turn raw data into a clear visual story. We’ll also look at out how infographics relate to data visualisation and go over examples that demonstrate techniques that work and pitfalls to avoid. By the end of the class, you’ll understand the foundational steps you need to go through to create effective infographics on your own.

Please note that some of the principles and examples covered in this evening are the same as those in the Data Visualisation 101 with JavaScript workshop, although different tools will be covered.
