Creating Your Own Infographics
August 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Let’s make data pretty! This CETL Session is all about Infographics.
Simply put, an infographic is a visual representation of information. By combining elements of text, images, charts, or diagrams, an infographic is an effective tool to present data and explain complex issues in a way that can quickly lead to insight and better understanding. As designers, researchers, staff, scholars, or students may be asked at some point in our career to create an infographic; but where does one even begin?
During this session we will:
– discuss how data can be reimagined to be visually appealing
– analyze 3-4 infographic design platforms
– use the design platforms to mold boring facts and figures into something visually extraordinary!
Please note: This session will be a hands-on workshop and attendees will be encouraged to participate in the hands-on design process during this session.
