Transforming Knowledge into Change

How to Use Data Visualization to Better Tell Your Story

Memos and metrics, emails and texts, newsletters and reports: Is your organization suffering from information overload? We consume 34 gigabytes, or 100,500 words, of information every day. Our brains are overwhelmed and struggling to keep up. Data visualization–or dataviz–is one of the strongest weapons against information overload. Colorful diagrams, well-designed charts, and engaging infographics are easy to digest and fun to share. Dataviz can get your colleagues to pay attention to your organization’s most important data. Dataviz can captivate and catalyze your supporters. And dataviz can increase your communication power with pretty much every audience you’re hoping to inform or sway.

So get started! Here’s an overview of my step-by-step dataviz design process.
