Data Driven with Lily Chow

Deciphering the Good, Bad + the Pretty
How to Visualize Information

Join us for a lecture and hands-on weekend workshop with data visualization expert, Lily Chow.

Infographics can be a compelling way to tell or annotate a story. If a picture is worth 1,000 words, an infographic is worth thousands of data points & trends. But, not every beautifully-designed graphic is a success. As with all creative areas, one must know the rules before you can successfully break them in a smart & innovative way. What are the different forms an infographic can take? What’s the best visual solution? How do you find the balance between form & function? What are some best practices on the client & design side to achieve the best collaboration? This workshop will walk you through the process of creating an infographic from brief to final execution, detailing how to let the information tell you what it's best form is & let your awesome design mind do the rest.
