About This Class

Join information designer Rhiannon Fox on her first online teaching opportunity with Skillshare! During this class you'll learn to visualize a small amount of population data in a simple and easy to understand infographic. You will work through understanding your data, learning to tell a story, and how to use a monochromatic color scheme to maintain a visual hierarchy. 

This class is inspired by the growing population of the world and the trends we may see. 

You'll:
- Understand the data provided (or find your own dataset)
- Develop your visual graphic through research and sketching
