Dogbert says to Diibert: "Information is gushing toward your brain like a firehose aimed at a teacup!" An extremely effective way to make sense of all this information is to find stories in the data and visualize them, which can speed comprehension, summarize the complex, show hidden relationships, reveal patterns and more.
And this is happening across all industries, from scientific and medical groups —who often have to explain complex information to a lay audience— to PR firms and other businesses who are looking for ways to engage, inform and motivate their markets.
We are a unique gathering of professional visual communicators who employ a wide variety of storytelling platforms (print, interactive and motion graphics) and visual tools (maps, graphs, diagrams, video, etc.) to do our jobs. We will explain our process for finding visual stories in the data, discuss the best technologies for doing what we do and illustrate how we build, plan and execute graphics.
