Day 144 of 180 Days of Data Viz Learning #jfdi #doneisbetterthanperfect

I’m doing some form of data visualization learning for 180 days because I need to #JFDI.

  • Back on this after some mental break

The Functional Art: An Introduction to Information Graphics and Visualization by Alberto Cairo

p 244-271 All the Infographics Fit to Print and Capital Infographics

Three Takeaways

  • Art, graphics, and information should really be flowing with each other and not seen as discrete p 254
  • “It’s a curiosity that leads to the pursuit of different methods of creating visual forms” p 262
  • Don’t underestimate the power of sketching out your visuals and of annotations and captions p 271
