About This Class

If you want to make effective and nice charts using office tools like Microsoft Excel, and have no formal graphic design skills, this introduction to data visualization is for you.

Think of it as a safety net that will prevent you from falling into the worst data visualization practices like treating a chart as a data dump, excessive makeup (3D effects, rainbow colors).

You’ll learn about data visualization tasks and questions, how to select the right chart to answer them, how to design for effective communication and how to use color.
