MancDB January Meet Up - Andy Kirk
09/01/2018

In this talk Andy will demonstrate the importance of following a design process in Data Visualisation, a topic that is central to the structure of his new book, ‘Data Visualisation: A Handbook for Data Driven Design’ (Sage).      

  

Finding a successful approach to tackling any data visualisation challenge requires finding a way to organise your analytical and creative decision-making. This helps you to achieve effective results, more efficiently. To support his approach, Andy will describe two contrasting case-study projects, present some of the many decisions, options and choices that emerged through the process of development. 

Andy Kirk (@visualisingdata) is a Leeds-based data visualisation specialist and editor of the award-winning website www.visualisingdata.com. Andy provides design consultancy and delivers training workshops to organisations all around the world. He is the author of two books, most recently through a text published in by Sage entitled “Data Visualisation: A Handbook for Data Driven Design”. He is a visiting lecturer on Masters degree programmes at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA, USA) and Imperial College, London.

This event is sponsored by Michael Page, who will provide pizza and beer on the night!

When? Tuesday 9th January, 6pm - 9pm
Where? 1 Hardman Square, Spinningfields, Manchester
