Using data & design to present a visual story

Learn how to tell a visual story with data and infographics

We believe in stories with an opinion and sound data analysis so that a time-poor executive or an easily distracted audience will leave with your important insights and your opinions in the front of their minds. Get the confidence to influence and entertain your audience. It all starts with designing your data well and using storytelling to make it memorable.

We teach the techniques we use in our day to day agency life to tell stories will stay in the minds of the audience long after the presentation has ended.Data is believable. With a story, it’s engaging. Data is inherently quantified, so there’s trust in what the data is saying. It just needs a story, a visual story.

We’re happy to share our knowledge of and passion for data visualization.

What Data Visualization Workshops does Datalabs Offer?

ring together with the science of visual analytics with the artful techniques of fiction and non-fiction storytelling. Does your story have a villain (a competitor), is this a coming-of-age tale (from start-up to established business), have you — personally — helped in your own way to turn around a business unit (the protagonist undergoes a change)? The audience in your presentation understands these characters and narratives in a story; they’re exposed to stories countless times a day.

The workshop covers the following topic:

  • The basics of data visualisation
  • Selecting charts that tell a story
  • The structure of a narrative & story
  • Composition and control of the narrative
  • Visual and temporal storytelling techniques
