Learn about data driven storytelling

My introductory masterclass combines theoretical instruction with exercises in sketching and storyboarding. The workshop provides hands-on perspective regarding the decision-making processes which go into the creation of effective data-driven narratives.

The content is delivered through a mix of teaching, discussions and group practices. Attendees work independently and in groups.


Topics covered on the day include:

• The history and principles of data visualisation
Visual perception theory in practice
An effective visual display of information
Colour theory and usage
Charting conventions
Visual and interactive storytelling
Primary considerations: audience, purpose, medium
An overview of digital tools


The workshops are designed for a mix of professions and individual interests. Many participants are seeking to become more confident in processing data and generate more creative visual narratives.


Participants will come away with an understanding of:

The why and how we visualise data
How to evaluate the effectiveness of data driven communication
• H
ow to identify best-fit solutions for data visualisation
• How to use visual metaphores to create compelling outcomes
A vocabulary of terms to bring into their workflow
