5W Academy is heading to Washington D.C. and San Francisco for our next Infographics and Data visualization workshops in the US. We’ll be in Washington on April 26-27 and in San Francisco on May 10-11. Before that, we’ll be in Singapore in March and again in April for other workshops, partnering with the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) and with our friends of Methodology.
We received great feedback from our NYC workshop in January. A combination of local and out-of-state participants from publishing companies, design studios, NGOs and other organizations got together for two days.
The two-day workshop is a comprehensive introduction to the creation of infographics and data visualization. With a mix of theory and practice, the workshop is aimed at professionals and students interested in developing the skills to produce engaging, insightful visual storytelling with their content.
We will learn how to gather and prepare data, the Do’s and Dont’s of working with numerical information and charts, and the principles of visual hierarchy, color, typography, illustration, and narrative to create impactful infographics.
Attendees will sketch out infographics, storyboard motion graphics and create / publish their interactive data visualizations and web maps with the help of Tableau Public. The class will discuss award-winning projects and offer an overview of tools and strategies for creating infographics and data visualization.
At the same time, we are keeping busy in Asia. We’ll be back in Singapore in late March for a private workshop for a news publisher, working with the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA). And we’ll be there again in April for a series of public and private workshops hosted Methodology. We’ll publish more details about these events soon!
