Infographics Basics with Tableau

Infographics Basics with Tableau

The very best infographics are both eye-catching and easily readable, but what goes into creating them? A successful infographic tells a story using data, and making one requires a combination of data visualization, storytelling, and design thinking. In this workshop, we will talk about the five main steps it takes to create attractive and understandable infographics - Story, Data, Color, Text, and Structure - using the software Tableau Public.

If you are interested in this workshop, please also consider attending the Intro to Data Visualization workshop on February 28, 2019. Although these two workshops are independent, Infographics Basics will build on some of the concepts related to data visualization that are introduced in the earlier workshop. No prior experience with Tableau is necessary.
