Part of “Breakthroughs: Where Inspiration and Technology Meet,” a new webinar series designed by Adobe and AIGA
We live in the information age, where we are continually inundated with increasing amounts of data. Data, however, is almost unintelligible in its raw form. Combined with principles of visual communication design, data can come alive. Well-presented data has the ability to speak to us, inform us and change our behavior. Data visualization requires tools of visual language and literacy, which designers have in abundance. In this webinar, we'll learn how designers are making the invisible visible, and how pairing data and design can help businesses be more effective.
Led by moderator Callie Neylan, Angela Shen-Hsieh, CEO and founder of GroupVisual.io, will talk about how to use design to interpret data for use in decision making; and Jared Waxman of Adobe Systems will share examples of how designers and their clients can use data to improve the impact of their work.
