Jane Thomas and Brianne Walsh traveled to New York City to participate in a one-day workshop on data visualization. The workshop was presented by David McCandless, writer, data journalist, designer, and author of the blog and book Information is Beautiful. The workshop outlined four steps of creating effective and dynamic data visualizations: concepting and generating good, interesting ideas, researching and curating juicy data, executing and selecting appropriate and effective visualizations, and designing and beautifying impactful charts and diagrams. The workshop provided a fun, hands-on, insightful introduction and approach to the development of infographics, and IAN hopes to incorporate David's tips and tricks into our own design process.
