Designing with Data

A session at WebVisions Chicago 2012

Thursday 27th September, 2012

1:15pm to 2:00pm (CST)

Every piece of information on your screen is visual noise. From background textures, to fonts, borders, rounded corners, drop shadows, and even the number of buttons or navigation items--it's all visual noise. Clear and effective design is about striking a balance between being visually appealing and being useful. With the rise of big data, navigating the waters of visual noise becomes even more challenging.

In order to effectively design with data, you need to understand the data, prioritize it, and make it scale for mobile, tablet, and desktop. Jam packed with visual examples and case studies, Todd will show a number of tricks and techniques that anyone can use for designing with data.

If you want to ride the big data wave, want to learn techniques for making analytics, dashboards, and screens packed with information more effective, delightful, and easy-to-use, then this session is for you.
