Aug 18, 2020, 01:24 PM
MIT ID Innovation Programme invites you to MIT ID's first-ever week-long Virtual Grad Show, which will showcase Innovation projects by students of the Foundation Batch, while they hand over the baton of Innovation to Class of 2020. 
One of the industry-interactions in the Grad Show, provides a glimpse into our collaboration with Mr. Rasagy Sharma, Principal Designer, Gramener 
In this short 2 hour workshop, we’ll explore why data needs to be narrated as stories, look at some case studies by Gramener & learn the process of going from data analysis to narrating a story. We’ll learn how design thinking’s user-centricity & encoding principles based on visual perception enable us to visualize insights that are useful & engaging. 
The workshop will be beginner-friendly, aimed at designers who need to visualize data or anyone who needs to communicate insights. No prior knowledge of data analysis/data science is needed for the workshop. This will be open for all.
