New Course Pilot: Fundamentals of Data Visualisation & Infographic Design

Session 1: Thursday 17th June 2021, 1-4pm | Session 2: Friday 18th June 2021, 1-4pm

The Fundamentals of Data Visualisation & Infographic Design is an online training course providing attendees with a sophisticated understanding of how to effectively communicate data visually. The training aims to facilitate this understanding by deconstructing this contemporary, multi-disciplinary craft.


This is not a technical course and will not focus on how to use certain tools or applications, however some common visualisation technologies will be profiled. Instead, the course is structured around a proven design process that helps you to organise and optimise your critical thinking, irrespective of the data-driven communication challenges you are facing.

The course is designed for and relevant to anybody who needs to communicate with data. You might be an analyst, statistician, or researcher looking to enhance the creativity and impact of your communications. Perhaps you possess creative flair, as a designer or developer, but you’re seeking to enhance the rigour of your data-driven thinking.

The course is delivered by Andy Kirk, an experienced UK-based data visualisation design consultant, trainer, lecturer, author, speaker, and researcher. He is the editor of and host of the ‘Explore Explain’ video and podcast series. Since founding Visualising Data Ltd. in 2010, Andy has worked with a wide range of clients, including Apple, S&P Global, Arsenal FC, Google, EU Council, and Pfizer. He has conducted over 300 public and private training courses in 27 different countries. 

Places are very limited. The pilot is only open to Postdocs, Research Fellows, and PhD students. If we do not fill all places, other groups may be permitted to join. For more information, or to express your interest in attending, please fill out this form.
