Workshops are Beautiful full day: London

By on March 7, 2019

In the age of info overload, visualization of data, information and knowledge has incredible potential to help us quickly understand, navigate & find meaning.

But how do you create effective, interesting and, above all, useful data-visualizations and infographics?

David McCandless, founder of Information is Beautiful, shares his concept-driven process and method for creating successful visualizations in this rare workshop, giving you a chance to ask questions and get feedback on your work.

# What will you learn?

In a one-day (6.5 hour) workshop, attendees will specifically learn:

  • » concepting and the generation of good, interesting ideas ripe for visualization
  • » creating, selecting and executing appropriate & effective visualisations
  • » designing and beautifying charts & diagrams

# Be broadly introduced to:

  • » how to use dataviz as a new lens for communication of ideas and stories
  • » the many new methods and approaches for visualising data
  • » a playful creative approach to data, based on exploration and discovery, for better results
  • » how to combine design-thinking and statistical rigour without compromising either

# What’s the style of the workshop?
Expect a fun, informative experience that is interactive and hands-on: pens, paper, sketching, sharing etc. All with a solid underpinning of best practice.

# This workshop would be useful if you’re:

  • » wishing to translate written reports, research and messaging into impactful visual form
  • » wanting to better understand the practice of data journalism and story-telling with data
  • » needing to succinctly communicate issues or data points to specific audiences
  • » a “word 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

# What will I come away with?

Everyone leaves with their own datavizzes created on the day, a unique limited-edition handout pamphlet, and a slide deck. David will also sign copies of his books and pose awkwardly on the end of selfie-sticks.

The event Workshops are Beautiful full day: London will be held at Cubic Theatre on Wednesday 13th of March 2019.
