Following the success of previous workshops in Europe and Asia, we are pleased to announce a new 5W ACADEMY workshop in New York City.
This two-day workshop is a comprehensive introduction to the creation of infographics and data visualization. With a mix of theory and practice, the workshop is aimed at professionals and students interested in developing the skills to produce engaging, insightful visual storytelling with their content.
We will learn how to gather and prepare data, the Do’s and Dont’s of working with numerical information and charts, and the principles of visual hierarchy, color, typography, illustration, and narrative to create impactful infographics.
Attendees will sketch out infographics, storyboard motion graphics and create/publish their interactive data visualizations and web maps with the help of Tableau Public. The class will discuss multiple award-winning projects and offer an overview of essential tools and strategies for creating engaging infographics and data visualization.
