Course Details


☆  Abstract

The power of infographics is that it keeps things simple. Instead of having to deal with some 50-page report, you could present things in one or two pages of info graphics, which are followed by a few sentences, which interpret key data.

People learn and remember best through pictures, not through written or spoken words. Humans have been drawing pictures to communicate with each other for thousands of years—from pictograms on cave walls to Egyptian hieroglyphics to ideograms on modern signs.

If you’ve read a newspaper or blog, flipped through a magazine, or used social media recently, you’ve likely come across infographics—those self-contained pictorials that tell you the gist of a story or concept at a glance. You’ve probably heard the phrase “A picture is worth a thousand words,” a manifesto that speaks to the value and efficiency of visual communication.

☆  Who is this for?

This is a course for everyone, but different people use infographics for different purposes, so the audience for possible participants of the training course is from different fields, and includes people from Faculty of Art, design industry, marketing agencies, managers and business people, like:

  • Students

  • All artists (designers, painters…)
  • People who work with data and wish to learn more about turning data into something visually compelling
  • Developer who is interested in creating more usable and elegant front-end solutions

Whether you are a graphic designer, an art-oriented person, or simply interested on learning a new skill and you have at least a beginner level of an image editing software then you are more than welcome to join.
