MIT ID Innovation Grad Show 2020 - What stories can you narrate with data?
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.
