You’ve collected all your data, analysed the results, and are ready to present it to the world - but how do you ensure that your data creates impact?  During this session, we’ll walk through a step-by-step data visualization process that you can apply to your own reports, slideshows, dashboards, or infographics. You’ll learn how to customize your visualization for your audience; choose the right chart for your message; declutter your visuals so that viewers’ attention is focused on the data; reinforce your branding with custom color palettes and typography; and increase accessibility by ensuring that your visuals are legible for people with colour vision deficiencies. Finally, you’ll learn to tell a data story through dark-light contrast and takeaway titles.
