Your First Infographic: Rapid Prototyping in Google Docs (Online Class)

Thursday, August 29th from 3:00 - 4:00 pm EST

Larry Buchanan, Designer and Coder, The New Yorker


Although making an infographic seems like an arduous task, there are ways to prototype and create infographics using widely-available tools. In this class, Larry will walk students through choosing appropriate file formats for their data and then prototyping infographics in Google Docs.


Takeaways

  • Explore different visuals to convey patterns in data

  • Choose appropriate file formats

  • Prototype a few different versions of an infographic


Larry Buchanan would love to debate the merits of your gradient-y buttons or argue with you about fonts. He's a freelance designer and illustrator who's designed things for Nike, ESPN, The Onion, Mashable, The New Yorker, and the US Government. He recently completed the GA web dev immersive class, so he knows enough Javascript and Ruby to be dangerous.
