Infographics: Visualizing Relationships

with Shane Snow

Video: Welcome

Welcome to Infographics: Visualizing Relationships. I am Shane Snow, and I'm addicted to infographics. I've been designing infographics for social media sites like Mashable for the last five years, and I'm really excited for this course. In this course we're going to cover setting the stage for creating a common yet complex type of infographic, a multi-relationship radial diagram. We'll cover the principles of these types of infographics, and then we'll use real data to recreate a very cool infographic about social networking. I'm excited to go over creating legends, laying out characters around a radial chart, and illustrating relationship lines between different characters in a complex visualization.
