What a great slide share program on visual storytelling and not being afraid to build visual stories out of data.
And many thanks to fellow curator Baiba Svenca for suggesting this piece to me!
Here's what I like about this SlideShare post -- it contains terrific data about visual storytelling that we all can use in our work. As businesses, we can take this information to share with others to bring them on board with visual storytelling. As consultants, the info is really good to share with clients.
I also like how the author Leslie Bradshaw gives us some processes to use to create our own visual stories of data. There's lots to think about and play with here!
What I miss from the presentation is any mention of actual storytelling elements that are essential if you are going to do visual storytelling with data -- like how to embed emotions and use LOTS (the language of the senses) in the design and presentation of data to help create the story. Or how to use story structures to organize the data.
So when you are creating your visual stories, add these pieces in for maximum impact and to stand out from the crowd!
