In September 2020\, he finally finished this project which\, unexpectedly\, turned out to be a 240-page book. In this talk Andy will go through his design process to share the detailed story behind this work: from the contextual circumstances\, through the analytical stages of collecting and handling data\, on to the myriad design choices around chart selections\, colour usage and annotation. \nDesign for your Audience\, OK but how?\nIn this talk Andy Kirk unpacks what it actually means to design for your audience. He will explore the different aspects of classifying audience characteristics around motivation\, capability\, capacity and pressure. Additionally\, he’ll look at the different settings in which audiences may encounter or experience visualisations\, and how these affect design choices. Along the way\, Andy will reflect on ways of making data more relatable and participatory to amplify the possibility of facilitating understanding. \n  \nCosts \n\n\n\nRATE\nCOST\n\n\n\n\nCommunity Member – Data Analytics\nNo Charge\n\n\nCommunity Subscriber – Data Analytics\nNo Charge\n\n\n\nThese webinars are exclusively available to Data Analytics Community members. \nTo join the community free of charge\, please click here. Please note that you may need to wait 24 hours after subscribing before you can book to attend. \n  \nAbout the speakers \nRachel Kirkham\, Director\, MindBridge Ai\nRachel is Director of AI Solutions and is responsible for the delivery of tailored solutions and services for the European market.
