What's in Workshops are Beautiful
The full day (6.5 hour) or half day (4 hour) introductory level workshops are hosted theatre-style with around 100 participants and high quality projected visuals. They are a mix of lecture & hands-on exercises with plenty of discussion.
Expect to learn:
» Concepting and the generation of good, interesting ideas ripe for visualization
» Creating, selecting and executing appropriate & effective visualisations
» Designing and beautifying charts & diagrams
And be broadly introduced to:
» How to use dataviz as a new lens for communication of ideas and stories
» Researching, finding and curating juicy data
» The many new methods and approaches for visualising data
» How to combine design-thinking and statistical rigour without compromising either
This workshop will be useful if you’re:
» Wishing to translate written reports, research and messaging into impactful visual form
» Wanting to understand data journalism and story-telling with data
» A words and ideas person looking to translate your concepts into design language
» A visual / design thinker wanting to expand your approach to include data
» A data / code person looking to improve aesthetics and conceptual prowess
As not all participants are close to our major workshop cities, we are developing an online training series. Register your interest in a webinar by signing up on our list.
