“In a world drowned in data, infographics and visualization are becoming key skills for business communicators. In this session we will explore how to design graphs, maps, charts, and diagrams that are not only attractive, but that let readers identify patterns and trends, and get valuable insights from datasets. We will also cover the best strategies to tell stories based on displays that combine visual and textual components.
In this session you will learn how to:
1. Create more effective graphs, charts, and maps
2. Take advantage of the main rules of graphic design, type, and color
