(soft swooshing vibration) - Welcome to Infographics: Visualizing Relationships. I'm Shane Snow, and I'm addicted to Infographics. I've been designing inforgraphics 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. This course is part of a series on the fundamentals of infographic design, and it's going to be a lot of fun. So, let's stop visualizing how great this course is and just get started.
