We are surrounded by information. Data Visualisation helps to distill ideas and especially complex information to visualise and understand them in a clear, concise way. By using a strong narrative and well-edited content, infographics allow the audience to understand the message.

As a designer, the ability to interpret and visualise statistical information and complex data making it more accessible is a valuable skill. This Workshop focuses on how to use data visualisation to communicate ideas and stories effectively, from interpreting datasets to the various approaches and techniques for visualising data.

Understanding and questioning a brief and datasets to translate it visually along with the appropriate output to fully engage with your audience are an important part of the process, and the starting point of the workshop.

Trainer: Heather Griffin – is an information designer, working across digital and print formats. Her designs support various organisations in policy, not-for-profit, research, advocacy and development sectors. Heather has worked on a number of information design projects of complex data visualisations both static and in motion, for The Irish Independent, Board Bia, Media Standards Trust, Kings College London, UNICEF and Oxfam.

Heathers work featured in the data exhibition ‘ Place Your Bets’ for London Design Festival, a London focused theme, that looked at the phenomenon of future gazing through the lens of data, visualising how we travel, where we will live and how we will interact. Each piece investigated a different facet of the city and gave evidence to visitors who, in turn could form their own opinions and predictions.
