Hello EDO friends
The craft of data visualisation is often overlooked so we are very pleased to announce our next event is on information graphics on 30 June.
Infographics #1 presents three diverse data specialists:
David McCandless describes himself as a data journalist and information designer. His work has appeared in Wired, The Guardian, and The Independent. He is author of the extremely successful book, Information is Beautiful and has recently spoken at the awe inspiring talks, TED, (Technology Entertainment and Design). McCandless’ book will be on sale at the event for an EDO price of £15 instead of £20.
Nathalie Lees is in-house illustrator for The Times. She also works with numerous freelance clients including the BBC, The New York Times and The Observer. She recently completed the second Professor Brian Cox book ‘Wonders of theUniverse’, designed by Studio 8.
Peter Grundy has spent over 30 years making information visually interesting. His simple yet beautiful approach has become his signature. He calls it “Iconography; pictures that provide information and explain complex things”. Clients include Shell Oil, Architects Journal, Royal Mail, The Guardian and Wired.
It promises to be another stimulating event so buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Better still, become a member and not only receive a significant discount on your ticket price but you’ll also benefit from a 40% discount on ‘The Art Directors’ Handbook of Professional Magazine Design’ published by Thames and Hudson.
