Presentation


Overview

As the use of data visualization is growing exponentially across practically every profession today, we can see now that the way we understand complex relationships can’t always speak to us through bar graphs and pie charts. Sometimes we need more thought provoking depictions of data, just as we do with music and literature, to understand the world around us. Design theory is being applied to tell a story and give a visual narrative in diagrams more often than ever before. Is this a good thing or a wrongful manipulation of facts?

Wes will demonstrate the importance of visual metaphors and their effectiveness, especially when drawing complex, multi-dimensional relationships.
