<nettime-ann> 2nd Edition - Storytelling Through Infographics Workshop - Lisbon


Storytelling Through Infographics  - 2nd Edition

Workshop - Data visualisation for journalists, designers and marketeers

Christian Tate/Rob Orchard (UK),
Lisbon, 18th June, 10am -5pm

Organized by CADA



It seems like everybody is creating infographics and data visualisations these days. But while these can look pretty, all too often they don’t tell a clear, compelling story. This one-day course will teach you how to spot key stories in data and bring them out in engaging and attractive infographics which pack a punch.

The workshop is led by Christian Tate, Art Director of Delayed Gratification magazine and Rob Orchard, Editorial Director of Delayed Gratification magazine, both of whom lecture on the subject at Guardian Masterclasses. It comprises a mix of presentations and seminars with plenty of practical exercises, shortcuts and templates to make the infographics research and creation as straightforward and enjoyable as possible. There will be opportunities on the day to discuss individual projects with the tutors, and how-to handouts so you can continue to learn after the class.

 This workshop is ideal for:

- Journalists, marketing and other communications professionals looking to present stories attractively
- Designers who want to develop their infographics skills and give them a journalistic edge

- Freelancers hoping to pitch infographics to publications and organisations
