Most of us approach data vis from a very technical perspective; data sciencing around for clients and employers; visualising customer data or other super serious things. For our next Data Vis Meetup, we want to show the playful side of data, and how to visualise data in an illustrative style. We're very happy to have Lisa, Tin, David and Ole as speakers at the meetup. Hardcore data vis perfectionists might not agree with everything they do, but we're sure that all of us gets tons of inspiration out of their talks; and we'll have lots of fun.
We would love to see you at this meetup. Show up, have drinks and meet data vis enthusiasts! These are our speakers this time:
Lisa Rienermann (@lisarienermann) is an illustrator, photographer, art-director, and author. She tells stories with pictures, often plays with food, has a crush on pie charts, and especially loves projects where she can combine all these things. With her colleagues Anna Lena Schiller and Sylke Gruhnwald, Lisa publishes a series of infographics called “data made of things”(@datamadeofthings). She'll talk about counting peas, finding interesting data, and her recipes for transforming food into information.
What are the most photographed body parts? And which ones get the most likes? Data retrieved through the API of Instagram can tell. So journalist Tin Fischer (@herrfischer), software engineer David Goldwich and graphic designer Ole Häntzschel turn it into cartoonish data visualisations. They will take us on a tour through their new book.
Come and join us on Wednesday at Betahaus!
