Data people and Designers - Let's make working together work
The two tribes - the people who research and create the content (journalists, data analysts, biz devs…) and the designers, who help numbers come to life - both share the goal of presenting the data accurately and convey a narrative. Yet there is a great chasm between them: large spreadsheets loaded with numbers are the best friends of the data tribe and designers’ worst nightmare.
How do we bridge this gap?
How do we make designers interested in the topic that content people spent days, months or even years researching and growing attached to?
How to help designers stay happy when they are asked to fit 15.0394738799 into a graph?
How can we make content people understand the importance of giving a title to a graph?
How can we make content people and designers work in synergy to reach their goal - create great visualizations?
I will share several tips that help you understand how to make this content-designer relationship work, using some examples from my several years of experience as an Infographic designer.
