ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS
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
• How 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
I have delivered training for public and private organisations. Some of my clients include Google, Pfizer and the UN ILO and I have been a visiting lecturer at the London College of Communication, Ravensbourne and Southbank University.
I started working with Valentina a few years ago. She was actually the first trainer to run a workshop on behalf of Graphic Hunters. She is a really talented designer and shares her passion about dataviz in an enthusiastic way. Her training is a nice mix of theory and practice. Participants work alone or in groups on several assignments, to get a thorough understanding of storytelling with data.
