Visual Design Tactics for Data and Information Visualization
Are you interested in using data visualizations in your work, but not sure how to visually present them? Looking for an introduction to concepts in methods in visual design for information and data? This session will cover some of the basic principles of visual and graphic design. We will share best practices for how to apply visual design principles to your data visualizations for multiple contexts: print, presentation, poster, web, etc. We will discuss key examples from the field of information design, and then conduct hands-on exercises in planning your design and fine-tuning it for publication. No specific tech or software skills are required.
