Pricipal and Creative Director
Infographics have captured our minds and imaginations as we are increasingly exposed to facts, data, and visual traffic. As they have done over the centuries under various guises, today’s infographics help us distill information, provide additional analysis, reveal patterns, facilitate comparisons, and simply tell a story. They communicate what words and numbers can’t easily do alone. This workshop will introduce you the process of build a compelling infographic. Participants from all walks of life are welcome!
