What is the difference between a boring graph and an eye-catching visualization? It's not about tools, colors, or shapes, but about applying design best practices. This talk is for those with the software chops and interest necessary to create data visualizations, who would like to make their work more compelling. We'll look at storytelling as a framework for the work of visualizing data, and then discuss the key concepts that will move you toward effective visual communication. Whether you're creating data visualizations for the entire public, or just for your boss, you'll learn how to tailor your message effectively and then make specific design choices to support and reinforce that message.
