Designing data visualizations presents us with unique and interesting challenges: how to tell a compelling story; how to deliver important information in a forthright, clear format; and how to make visualizations beautiful and engaging. In this talk, Julie will share a few disruptive designs and connect those back to vizipedia, her compiled data visualization library.

Julie will introduce methods used to show revealing insights into data comparisons, connections, and conclusions:

How do we analyze and compare attributes?
How do we show associations and links between data sets?
How do we discover themes?

Data visualization methods are at the core of extracting meaning from data. Together, attendees will explore, uncover, and examine iterations of design ideas.
