Data presentation can be beautiful, elegant and descriptive. There is a variety of conventional ways to visualize data – tables, histograms, pie charts and bar graphs are being used every day, in every project and on every possible occasion. However, to convey a message to your readers effectively, sometimes you need more than just a simple pie chart of your results. In fact, there are much better, profound, creative and absolutely fascinating ways to visualize data. Many of them might become ubiquitous in the next few years.

So what can we expect? Which innovative ideas are already being used? And what are the most creative approaches to present data in ways we’ve never thought before?

Let’s take a look at the most interesting modern approaches to data visualization as well as related articles, resources and tools.

METHODS: Large Format Printing

Despite the canvas, when considering large format printing – whether a trade show backdrop, billboard or vehicle wrap – less is definitely more.  We recommend a similar approach when advising clients on large format projects:

  1. Define – in no more than 10 words – the message the image is intended to convey
  2. Define – in 1 or 2 words – the emotion the image is intended to convey
  3. Define the audience for whom the image is intended
  4. Define all objects (logos, contact information) the image must contain
  5. Define the expected longevity of the image

The end result? A strong, targeted message and more bang for the client's buck.
