We will discuss how to figure out what story to tell, select the right data, and pick appropriate layout and encodings. The goal is to learn how to create a visualization that conveys appropriate knowledge to a specific audience (which may include the designer).
We’ll briefly discuss tools, including pencil and paper. No prior technology or graphic design experience is necessary. An awareness of some basic user-centered design concepts will be helpful.
Understanding of your specific data or data types will help immensely. Please do bring data sets to play with.
He has spent the last several years thinking about effective approaches to creating diagrams and other types of information visualizations. He also works in interface and interaction design, all from a functional and user-centered perspective. Before becoming a designer he was a programmer for several years.
He has a master’s in Technical Communication from the University of Washington, and a bachelor’s in Physics from Reed College.
