Dataviz inspiration from Infoplus 2018 and IEEEvis

Recently I had a three day inspiration tip to  both #infoplus2018 and #ieeevis2018.  I listened to many great talks and had inspiring conversations. Looking forward to apply all these new insights to chart.guide and improve the poster.

All talks at InformationPlus 2018 were filmed, soon the 2018 films will be online available. If you are interested, check the of InformationPlus website.

Celebrate International Chart Day with the new ChartGuide poster

At ChartGuide we celebrate International Chart Day  with releasing a new version of the ChartGuide Poster. Get your free version and celebrate with us by choosing and designing the perfect chart.

International Chart Day

Although it was not our idea of creating a special day, dedicated to charts, we are a big fan. The purpose of International Chart Day is:

Charts and other variations of information graphics have been around for hundreds of years, and are an important tool for making complex information easier to understand. However, not all charts are created equal: they can sometimes be too complicated or convey false and/or misleading information if not executed correctly.

On April 26, chart lovers will unite to celebrate the first-ever “International Chart Day,” an opportunity for the infographic creating community to engage the public by sharing their favorite examples, further explaining the history and value of charts, and sharing insight in to how to create high-quality, visually engaging, informative visualizations.

For more information on International Chartday, check https://www.internationalchartday.com/
