Tags : 

This post discussed my use of Tableau Software. For more information on Tableau visit the official website I've always used Tableau to quickly get to grips with a new data set and play with different chart types until I come across something effective.

Tags : 

I've been considering the relationship between brand guidelines and infographics recently.  I'd love your thoughts on this - tweet me! A lot of infographics created today are wholly standalone from the rest of the company's materials. Is this right? Should infographics be 100% branded, partially or not at all? (of course, it depends on the use, right?) In my experience there are 3 potential scenarios: client wants the infographic to strictly adhere to their brand guidelines client would Read more [...]
