Synthesizing Data Visualization and User Experience

Do you ever find yourself making a data visualization but you’re not sure which graph or chart to use? Do you look at a visualization and wonder what you’re supposed to be looking for? What purpose does this serve? What am I supposed to be focusing on?

We live in a world with an abundance of data which gives us opportunities for insight and action. But often it’s easy to get lost in it all. Our Managing Director, Mark Schindler, and fellow industry leader, Bang Wong (Creative Director of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard) want to offer you a solution.

DVUX Workshop draws on the parallels between data visualization and user experience design, taking both processes and highlighting the overlap. Effective data visualization is very much dependent on the user — what questions are they asking? What problems are they trying to solve? What insights will help them? Bringing in the UX design process helps create a data experience that is intuitive and actionable.

Participants will learn the fundamentals of how we see and how we understand presented through 7 principles. Then they will have the opportunity to apply these principles in hands-on exercises.

The workshop is geared towards people who work with data in a variety of ways — from producing it, presenting it, to consuming it. Whether you’re a product owner or manager, developer, designer, business or data analyst, you’ll walk away with skills that you can apply in your day to day work.
