"Make our data understandable!"

Sure, this might be a rallying cry among teams trying to create infographics, data visualizations, or dashboards that help users quickly digest complex information.

But do you know what story you're trying to tell with that data? And secondarily, how do you create a visualization that effectively communicates that story?

Find out if you're on the right track with Noah Iliinsky. He'll help you identify the value in your data and showcase it through user-friendly designs tailored to your audience. Draw from the science of cognitive perception to make design decisions based on user behavior.

Start with user-centered design

  • Determine a need for communicating data to specific users
  • Pick the right graph for your specific audience based on those needs

Select your relevant content

  • Put on your "editor" hat and select only the most essential data to include
  • Design around only the data most relevant to your particular audience

Structure visualization 

  • Use findings from cognitive science to inform your data-design decisions
  • See good and not-so-good examples of visualization structures and positioning

Format your visualization

  • Package your content in a format the audience will understand
  • Choose tables, charts, graphs, and other data-design patterns with confidence

Why Noah?

Yes, Noah Iliinsky might be considered unique in that he's an information designer with a background in physics. But it's his scientific approach to analyzing data first that makes him one of the most sought-after authorities on designing effective data visualizations.

Attendees of his Master's Tour talkundefinedplus listeners of his UIE podcast and UIE virtual seminarsundefinedwere so impressed by his pragmatic approach and friendly demeanor that they demanded more of him. So we're thrilled to have him back!

And if you still want more of Noah's knowledge, be sure to get his book, Designing Data Visualizations, and read his contributions to Beautiful Visualization (which he co-edited), both at O’Reilly Media.

Ever wish someone could teach you Best Practices for data visualizations so you could talk about them with your organization? Some wishes do come true.
