CLASS DESCRIPTION:

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 graphic. 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 under the same umbrella)
- Develop your visual graphic through research and sketching
- Design a simple and concise graphic

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! 

CLASS MATERIALS:

Illustrator (with at least a basic knowledge of understanding)

Pen/Pencil & Paper

CLASS OUTLINE:

I have put together a class outline you can view here.

CLASS PROJECT:

You will develop a monochrome infographic with at least 10 years of population data that will include a female and male breakdown.

This class is for anyone that would love to explore a niche market of graphic design and learn to do work with two data sets to produce a simple infographic. I will take you through the research, icon development, sketching, graphic electronic development and finally incorporating color.

You may use the data I have provided or feel free to find your own population data.

Assignment:

  1. Work through each of the steps to create your graphic.
  2. Post your project in the project gallery with your process so everyone can help each other with their progress.
  3. Feel free to post any questions in the community section of this class.
