Visualising your research: Creative Approaches and Drawing to Help Communicate your Work

Public cible:
The workshop is intended for all people interested in the subject and from all disciplines: all levels researchers and teachers.

The clearest and most effective method to communicate some information is through a picture. However, students with little previous instruction can find making these visualisations challenging and the results disappointing.In this workshop participants will obtain a grounding in the basics of visual design. They will learn techniques and working methods to enable them to produce successful and effective visualisations. Visualisations that will enable them to communicate their research / information more clearly and engage the viewer.

  • Introduction: Communication and visualisation
  • The basics of drawing
  • The basics of graphic design: Layout, CRAP - Contrast, Repetition, Alignment, Proximity, Colour - how and when to use it
  • Telling a story visually: Image hierarchy, How to simplify
  • Data visualisation: The Workflow, Examples – good/bad pract
  • Students should bring pencils and sketchbooks. They should also bring their laptops – they will be producing / reworking a visualisation in the classroom.

    Students must bring material to the workshop with which to make a visualisation: Either a visualisation they have already done that they want to rework or the research data they will need to produce a new visualisation.

    At the end of the course students will:

  • Understand and practice the basics of graphic design
  • Know the process/workflow of producing visualisations - from sketches to final layout
  • Understand how to tell a story in pictures.
