Have you recently read an article that covered a complex topic and wished that the author had included a clarifying graphic to help you better understand the subject? Or have you attended a presentation that left you thoroughly confused and turned-off due to the abundance of nonsensical and dense text, charts and diagrams? Bet you have.We know that ordered, aesthetically pleasing compositions can make or break how we communicate with our audience and brand our work. And we know that there’s a big difference between decorative, non-essential “fluff” and meaningful, efficient visual communication. Lets sort all of this out and put effective data visualization to work for you in your next project.In this session we’ll look at:
* When to communicate non-textually.
* What a successfully-designed graphic does and why.
* How to brand your work.
* Strategies for determining styles and executing a successful graphic.
* Resources and tools to help you along the way.
