Infographics Dos and Don’ts with Cheryl Graham

Data visualization involves more than adding flashy graphics to numbers. The goal is to illuminate the data, not decorate it.

In this session, you’ll learn some common pitfalls to avoid when presenting data visually. We’ll also look at some graphics that get it right. There will be math.

Cheryl Graham is a vector artist and illustrator living in Iowa City. She is an expert in all things Adobe Illustrator. Her vector work has appeared in the “Real World Illustrator” and “Illustrator WOW” books. In addition to freelance illustration, she develops online courses and tutorials for Envato, and is a senior reviewer at GraphicRiver.
