The training will take place at Mmousse in Amsterdam.
Bring your data to life using innovative visualization techniques in this one-day workshop unlike any other, and learn from world leaders that come from two sides of data visualization: data science and design. Explore styles, techniques and best practices to create meaningful and beautiful visualizations.
This workshop will provide you with the core skills needed to conceptualize, plan, and develop data visualization products. Taught by world-renowned leaders in the field — Stefanie Posavec and Jonathan Schwabish — this full-day workshop will inspire you to push beyond your own limits so you can create great, effective visualizations. Step away from your keyboard and enjoy some fresh space for your hands and mind: the entire workshop will be off-screen, using only basic drawing materials.
Working in groups, the instructors will guide you through the analysis of a dataset to the design and implementation of your own custom visualization method. You will expand your graphic knowledge, learn best practices, and discover different and innovative ways to communicate your data and analysis. Stefanie Posavec and Jonathan Schwabish will offer insights into the design principles that are integral to creating a successful visualization, regardless of function, medium, or context.
No coding skills, design skills, or data skills needed: the only requirement is an interest in data visualization! In this full-day workshop, you will learn the important underpinnings of the science and design process behind data visualization and how to effectively communicate your work.
By the end of the workshop, the attendees will:
Agenda of the training
Stefanie Posavec is a London-based designer for whom data is her favorite material, with projects ranging from data visualization and information design to commissioned data art. This work has been exhibited internationally at major galleries including MoMA (New York), the Science Gallery (Dublin), the V&A, the Design Museum, the Science Museum, The Southbank Centre, and Somerset House (London). In 2013, she was Facebook’s first data-artist-in-residence at their Menlo Park campus. She recently completed a year-long drawing project with Giorgia Lupi called Dear Data, where each week they gathered and drew their data on a postcard to send to the other.
Jonathan Schwabish is one of the leading experts in the field of data visualization. On his website www.policyviz.com he writes widely about the developments in the field. In addition, he hosts a well-listened dataviz podcast (policyviz podcast) and offers public workshops. Jonathan is generally known for calling for clarity and accessibility in research and he has written on various aspects of how to best visualize data including technical aspects of creation, design best practices, and how to communicate social science research in more accessible ways. Jonathan Schwabish is currently working as a senior researcher at the Urban Institute’s Income and Benefits Center in Washington.
