Data Design Process

The process of creating a data visualisation can be daunting. As a data designer, you need to make about a million decisions, and, if you’re anything like me, you’ve gotten a headache from them more than once. So how can you make the design process a more efficient and a more enjoyable experience? Organised thinking helps a lot—following a process that guides you through decision making in a structured manner. I wrote a chapter on it for the book Big Data Visualisation: Recent Developments and Challenges. The book will be published some time this year by CRC Press—stay tuned! In the meantime, you can learn more about the process from the visualisations below or watch a free workshop on it here.
