You’ll learn to…
- Pick the right tool for the data you’re designing
- Follow a plan that increases the lifespan of your visualization
- Make your data visualizations more powerful
How interesting or compelling are static Excel-based bar charts? Not very.
No one knows this better than Brian Suda. His work with companies such as PriceWaterhouseCoopers is defining just how powerful great data visualizations can be—especially when they’re tied to marketing or social-media campaigns aimed at raising awareness, conveying meaning, and getting users to interact.
Pick the right tool for the data you’re designing
- Go from jpeg to infographic to data visualization to simulation
- Find out how high-resolution retina displays affect interactivity
Follow a plan that increases the lifespan of your visualization
- Learn which skills are vital to creating great data visualizations
- Focus on making functional tools that fit shareable media like blogs
- Hear why coding saves time while increasing SEO value
- Show/hide, sort, or filter what’s in your data tables
Make your data visualizations more powerful
- Create dashboards and map data like a pro
- See what bleeding-edge tools (like 3D printing) are coming soon
Watch this seminar if you:
- Work for a company that sits on vast amounts of data—but spends entirely too much time making static images rather than interactive tools
- Want to learn some tools and coding techniques for creating data visualizations that are the opposite of boring
- Have mapped data or created visualizations that aren’t being looked at, used, or appreciated
Brian explains what you'll learn in this 90‑second preview…
Ok. We know you might already have read A Practical Guide to Designing with Data, Brian Suda's book on information design, which was published in 2010 by Five Simple Steps.
And we're guessing you've probably used some of his incredibly practical tools and templates, such as his color tests or microformats cheat sheet, in your own work. Or perhaps you've gained inspiration and direction from some of Brian's masterful work designing information for companies like PwC.
But we know you haven’t heard this seminar. And we also know that once you do, you’ll never look at data visualizations the same way again. Which - for what soon-will-be your many adoring fans - is a very good thing. Follow Brian on Twitter @briansuda.
