About This Class

It’s the beginning of a new year and a lot of companies want summaries of their 2016 achievements visualized. Most of my clients are drawn to the single page infographic (also referred to as a dashboard) visualizing their year to date. These can be really fun to make!

In this class you will work through compiling your data, developing your layout by using both abstract and refined sketching, and vectoring your single page infographic. You will combine your year summary data in a concise readable way. Using only typography, simple shapes and color. You will work with lines and hierarchy to break up your information to help lead the viewer through your information.

I look forward to seeing you in class!!


– Understand the data
– Develop your visual graphic through research and sketching
– Design a simple and concise Year in Review infographic using only typography

Anyone who is looking to branch out into data visualization or try something new, this is the perfect opportunity to test yourself with a simple yet beautifully put together graphic!

Fantastic course! Recently helped me with a client's year in review infographic. Keep them coming :)
This class is very informative and well explained. The segments make it very easy to follow the steps while also allowing you to get familiar with the steps you should take for your own projects. It also gives you ideas on how to develop your own process since not everyone's process is the same. In reference to the instuctor, Rhiannon's explanations and visual content complement each other in a way that adds to the experience. I also like the music used. I have enjoyed learning from Rhiannon.

“I have a love for the outdoors. If I’m not at my computer designing, I like to be outside exercising, playing sports and in and around water, beaching, boating or swimming. I also love to travel and explore nature and different cultures. If you’re not barefoot, then you’re overdressed.”
