Data Visualisation   
Federica Fragapane

Sign up now closed.

This workshop will guide the participants through all the phases of a data visualization project: selection of a topic, data analysis and visual representation. Special attention will be on the design of a visual narrative. We will be focusing on the participants’ interests and inclinations, both on the contents and on the visual aspects in order to create a clear, visually appealing visualization.

Participants will be offered through Google Sheets some datasets to choose from, according to their personal interests and inclinations. After a phase of visual exploration they will be guided to the visualization phase hand-drawing the data visualization or using Adobe Illustrator.

The aim will be to design a visual narrative using the communicative potential of data visualization, with an eye on visual experimentation.
