By the end of Hannah’s workshop, participants will have a new appreciation for the power of visuals, and what it takes to make information stick in the human memory.
Hannah will provide a practical, interactive walk-through on using techniques in visual design to cut through complexity, increase audience engagement and make your graphics more impactful and memorable. This workshop will outline the building blocks for a successful infographic or data visualization, including a ‘how-to’ process for fast-tracking concept development.
Learn about the role of colour in creating meaning and emotion, particularly in data-based graphics, and how to approach text in your designs. Examine the structure behind visual storytelling and unpack design examples that soar … and sink.
Time: 9:45am – 10:30am
