In the Information Age, we are surrounded by data — and countless ways to share it. But how do we make our statistics stand out to tell a clear and accurate story that resonates with our audience? To answer this question, we will explore the fundamental principles of information design, including hierarchy, organization, typographic grid and color.

We will discuss what makes a successful design using practical examples, and work in groups to put key strategies into practice. Whether you are presenting a logic model, annual report or other information display, you will learn how to transform words and data beautifully to make meaning. This session is technology-neutral — all levels of technical ability welcome. Emphasis is on application of design principles rather than program-specific skills.

Class size is limited to 25.
