Just a few days ago we came back from another good trip teaching workshops in Asia. We spent the first week in Singapore, our “base” in Asia since we have been there so many times. We keep good clients and friends in the city-state.
The first workshop was the public course we hold every few months in Singapore: The Power of Infographics, hosted by our friends at Methodology. The two-day workshop is a broad overview of the concepts and techniques behind infographics and data visualization, with plenty of hands-on sketching and exercises (including the creation of some online interactives with Tableau). The workshop attendees are public servants from different branches of government, as well as designers, students and educators.
The next two workshops were private two-day courses for one of the largest banks in Asia. We did the first one in Singapore and the second one in their offices in Mumbai, India. They have previously invited us to Jakarta and Kong Kong as well.
Large organizations have to deal with massive amounts of data, written reports and presentations, for internal communications or for public outreach. There is a growing interest in learning about how infographics can help find insight and reveal the key messages in a visual and more effective way.

By the way, we found a nice surprise while browsing at Kinokuniya, a great bookstore in Singapore: our book “Look Inside” was in the shelves! It’s exciting to see that is well distributed and selling well.
