Event Details

In today’s world, there is no shortage of data, but what does it all mean? Data visualization is the transformation of numbers and data sets into images and stories that inform, inspire, and influence, allowing us to unlock the power of our findings. 

Join us as Data Scientists and Information Designers share their experiences, and explain how getting comfortable with data is the first step to effective visualization, mastering analysis, and organizing data in ways that enhance creative storytelling.

We’ll discuss how visual and verbal elements can create a more digestible and appealing experience for data novices, and unpack the stories, people, and ideas behind the numbers.
