What you'll learn

Data insights are better understood when structured.

What is the data telling you? You'll learn how to craft a compelling message and narrative arc and apply them to both standalone charts and longer pieces (infographics, dashboards, slide decks, etc.)

Aesthetics matter.

Form follows function. You'll master the intricacies of visual perception and information hierarchy to turn your graphics into impactful story components. The methods you'll learn will work in Tableau, Power BI, Flourish, Illustrator, or any other tool of your choice.

Presenting data can be entertaining.

Just because you're presenting data, it doesn't mean you can't get creative. You'll practice a mix of strategies from Aristotle, TED, and Nancy Duarte that will transform your typical presentations into engaging data talks.

There is a method to the madness.

The process of data storytelling can feel messy and overwhelming. To guide you through the maze, you'll learn my tried-and-true design process inspired by UX design and journalism best practices.
