As data becomes more available, designers are being asked more often to help organizations communicate about data in presentations reports, and videos. Visuals have the power to help us learn and share information, but not everyone easily understands statistics and connects with numbers.
Join Lydia Hooper, a designer who specializes in data visualization and storytelling, for this hands-on workshop to learn how your designs can help or hurt audience understanding. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the questions to ask themselves and their collaborators to ensure the graphics they create clearly convey meaningful information.
