Fun, interactive, and hands-on — this workshop will inspire your team to push for a new standard of government communications.
Here are eight things we like to cover:
A Workshop Designed for Government Employees
Learn how to convert those hefty government reports and data sets into compelling data visualizations. Datalabs has over twelve years of experience working with all levels of government: local, state, and federal. This experience, in both Australia and the U.S., will be referenced in this workshop. Time and time again, we’ve seen dense reports, confusing diagrams, and lengthy datasets visualized in tables. This is why designed this workshop.
In today’s digital age, effective visual communication is crucial for government agencies to connect with their citizens. Visual storytelling and data visualization offer powerful tools to convey complex information in a compelling and accessible manner. Why shouldn’t government employees embrace these techniques to enhance transparency, engagement, and decision-making?
Visual storytelling is best at combining narratives with captivating visuals.
For government employees, incorporating new techniques in design will enhance their ability to communicate key messages effectively. By leveraging images, videos, infographics, and interactive content, they can present data-driven narratives that resonate with the public. Visual storytelling not only simplifies complex information but also humanizes government initiatives, making them more relatable and engaging for citizens.
Data visualization is an essential tool for promoting transparency within government agencies.
By presenting data in easily understandable visual formats, employees can foster trust and confidence in government initiatives. Clear and accessible data visualization empowers citizens to explore information, track progress, and make informed decisions. Government employees should strive to use interactive charts, maps, and dashboards (so-called new data viz) to present data in an engaging and user-friendly manner, ensuring transparency and fostering an environment of openness.
Storytelling with public policy data aids understanding and therefore, aids in the decision-making process.
Government employees can utilize these techniques to analyze and interpret complex data, identifying patterns and trends that inform policy development. Visualizing data allows decision-makers to grasp insights quickly and make informed choices based on evidence. By presenting data-driven narratives, government agencies can inspire confidence in their decision-making processes and demonstrate accountability to the public.
It’s that simple. And it’s our hope that this workshop will move the dial of creative visual communications with data.
The workbook consists of classroom-style instruction, theory, examples, and hands-on exercises. Order it along with our Visual Storytelling for Government Workshop and you will have everything you need to design great public infographics and PowerPoints. This is not your typical book; it’s packed full of practical knowledge that can be applied
immediately to your own projects. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to infographics or data design or have been creating them for years – there is something here for every skill level. By the end of this book, you can start applying these techniques to your team’s next project, creating stunning visualizations on your own.
