Data is everywhere, and to communicate your data clearly, you need well-designed data graphics, illustrations, and visualizations. We see poorly done graphics everywhere, and successful designs on occasion. While the products of design are visible, the process behind those designs remains elusive. So how does one get from A to B? What processes do successful data designers follow, and how can we all benefit by open-sourcing our processes?
