Infographics has the main mission to simplify information in a visually engaging way in order to attract and inform a large audience. The word infographics means a graphic design that combines in one data visualizations, illustrations, text, and images that tells a complete story.
|(This course has ended)|
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.
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:
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.
Please note: Although we do discuss the different visualization software options available, this is not a software training course.
This training will give the participants an opportunity to learn about:
What is infographic
The importance of good visual storytelling
Visualizing the story
Gathering your data
Discovering the story
Processing your Ideas
Infographics and SEO
Internal Confidential Infographics
How to find and analyze data, and match it to the needs of your audience
What makes a successful infographic
Participants will be asked to collaborate on creating their own visualizations, and in the end of the training program there will be individual presentation of the project to the group.
To follow this training you need to know at least one of the following software: Adobe illustrator, Adobe Photoshop or Corel Draw.
42 hours (7 weeks / 2 days per week * 3 hours). The course will start on February 23, 2016.
Tuesday and Thursday starting from 17:00-20:00
Every candidate who attend minimum 80% of training classes, and who finish his own infographic project presentation to the group, will be awarded with Certificate of course completion by the Innovation Centre Kosovo.
