We're a group that focuses on design best practices for data visualizations, presentations, and infographics. DFW Data Visualization is a professional group that meets regularly to discuss data visualization, data communication, infographics, data analysis, charts and graphs, visual marketing, and more! We want to interact and learn from designers, marketers, and experts that are willing to share their work, discuss case studies, provide insights, and discover data visualization tools. Join us to learn how to communicate more effectively with data visualization and design.
Thank you to Capital Factory for sponsoring event space in 2020. Capital Factory is the center of gravity for entrepreneurs in Texas. They meet the best entrepreneurs in Texas and introduce them to their first investors, employees, mentors and customers.
Our March event will be a "Talk & Follow-Along Workshop" with Kevin Smith, Visual Design Lead at Cisco Systems!
A practical guide to charting and data visualizations for a design system, from the ground-up. This session will discuss foundational rules and shortcuts to take ownership of your data driven products using Sketch (& Figma!).
A "Talk & Follow-Along Workshop" means that participation is optional. Kevin's talk includes a number of examples and exercises for anyone to attempt that brings their laptop. However, the presentation won't stop to walk around the room and make sure everyone is keeping up. With the large number of people in the room, the talk will continue and people will have the opportunity to ask questions and talk to Kevin at the end.
This will be a joint event with the Sketch Dallas Meetup (https://www.meetup.com/sketch-dallas/)!
