What will I learn?


Our world is increasingly complex and laden with many forms of measurable data. Infographics abound, but whether explicit or not,  the stories they tell are all designed. In this hands-on course, students will learn to use mapping and design techniques to sort and synthesize data, unlock insights and communicate information. We will create four different types of maps and infographics and students will practice finding insight from both qualitative and quantitative information. Take this course if you are interested in learning how to navigate through and create for the complicated intersection of data and design. This class is for students of all experience levels. Visit https://mapstomeaning.squarespace.com/ for examples of work created by previous students.
