Seeing Science: Improving Your Visual Communication Skills

Category: Research

Tags: data visualization, graphic design, Image Databases, peer, peer scholars, research, scholars, visualization

In order to improve your ability to communicate through a visual medium it is important to reflect on your work. Ask yourself: Does my visual design stand out? How can I tell a better story with my data? Are the standard communication practices in my field or the default settings of my statistical and visualization software enough? From the researcher interested in honing their visual communication skills to the designer with an interest in incorporating data into their design, this session will help you develop compelling graphics and visual narratives from your data.

Lead by Mac Hill, Master of Graphic Design Candidate, and Ben Johnson, Research Assistant in the Ocean Observation Modeling Group in the Department of Marine, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, this session will serve as an opportunity for individuals to share their own images, graphics, or visualizations for discussion amongst professionals and a group of their peers. This interdisciplinary program focuses on general best practices of graphic design and information communication, and we invite participation from all research backgrounds.

Registration is required for this event. Following registration participants will be emailed a form to submit the piece of visualization work they would like to share. Space is limited and only the first eight submitted pieces will be shown for discussion and critique. However, showing a piece is not necessary for participation and up to fifteen registrants will be admitted.
