information Design for Visual Storytelling
The field of Data Visualization combines 3 disciplines of study: Graphic Design, Statistics, and Computer Science. In order for a visualization to be dynamic, aesthetic and insightful it must involve successful application of all three practices. This course will focus on developing students’ information graphics skill set specific to creating visual stories. It will include critical thinking projects that relate to real life information design needs, both for standalone infographics and when producing graphics for dynamic visual stories.
