Creative Data Visualisation Design

03 November 2019 |Hyderabad

Jan Willem TULP

With so many tools around to create visualisations these days, it's easy to get overwhelmed or being stuck to the defaults. In this training, you will learn to think a bit more out of the box and step beyond the conventional charts. By looking at the boundaries of a visualisation project, we will challenge our creative muscles to come up with alternative visualisation designs that will engage and inspire users, and still communicate a clear message. Learn how to expand your horizon and look what is possible in addition to the standard set of graphs we all know or use. Try to think no longer about the limitations of tools and software, but design visualizations that effectively display the insights. Gain more self-confidence in choosing the best form for your dataset and be more creative within the tools you use.

The following topics will be covered during this one day workshop:


How can creativity be part of all the steps in your data visualization process? How do you come up with ideas and concepts to visualize? How do you apply a more creative approach and make more unique but still effective,  functional and user-friendly data visualisations? By using pens and paper, we will sketch different visualisation designs to express our creative ideas. By the end of the training, you will have a better idea what the options are to creatively express a dataset visually. 

Important:  We will NOT use computers during the workshop.


Target audience: anyone interested in getting a better intuition for understanding and creating data visualisations that communicate insights in data. NO programming skills or familiarity with tools are required.
