  1. Upplýsingamiðlun

    Brian Suda is a Master Informatician based in Iceland working on Upplýsingamiðlun, or data visualisations. He’s the author of Designing with Data, which is an introduction to those who have to create charts and graphs for a living, but could be doing it better.

    Brian talks with us about collecting data, the growth in the data and technology sector, the difference between data visualisations and infographics, and the importance of telling a good story. He also provides great tips on getting started in this exciting field and some resources for listeners.

  4. Brian Suda – Data Visualizations that Pack a Punch

    Creating visualizations from data can be a powerful and intriguing way to present findings. But way too many design teams sit on vast amounts of data. They also spend entirely too much time making static images rather than interactive tools.

    In his virtual seminar, Data Visualizations that Pack a Punch, Brian Suda outlines different types of meaningful data visualizations, from charts and graphs to more interactive models. He also discusses the importance of using the right tools and newer technologies and higher resolution displays as they emerge.

    The audience asked a slew of great questions during the live event. Brian comes back to chat with Adam Churchill and tackle some of those questions in this podcast.

    How do you approach accessibility challenges, such as color blindness? How do you communicate that the data you’re presenting is “fresh”? Is there a good way to demonstrate the ROI of good visualizations? What can you do to encourage people to start exploring and using data? Are there any examples of companies currently using visualizations well? Should you try to do this in-house or is it better to outsource to an agency? What is the best way to get started? Recorded: August, 2013

  5. storytelling with data: #1 the art of feedback

    This first episode focuses on feedback in data visualization. I discuss the value of both giving and receiving data visualization feedback and potential problem areas to avoid. Hear The Economist’s response to the recent hurricane data visualization challenge as well as answers to reader questions on the topics of when to use graphs, considerations with dashboards, and data viz 101 book recommendations.

  6. Scott Murray on Designing, Coding, and Data Visualization

    In this week’s Design Podcast, I sit down with Scott Murray, designer, creative coder, and artist who writes software to create data visualizations. Murray is the author of Interactive Data Visualization for the Web and the forthcoming book Creative Coding and Data Visualization with p5.js: Drawing on the Web with JavaScript. Murray is teaching an online course, Programming for Designers on May 11-12, 2016. We talk about why coding is a great skill for designers to learn (and it’s not just about earning more money); data visualization; and why design, at it’s core, is problem solving.

  7. 90 | Beyond the Chart with Brendan Dawes – Data Stories

    For our first episode of 2017 we had a very delightful chat with Brendan Dawes. Brendan is an artist and designer who works with interactive installations, data visualizations, and all things across the digital and physical sphere. He has a lot of super fascinating projects, including the famous Cinema Redux, an art piece that visualizes entire movies as a collection of snapshots.

    On the show we talk about his projects, his design process and philosophy, his relationship with the data visualization world, how he generates ideas, and his upcoming projects.

    We hope you enjoy this great conversation at the intersection of data, art, design, interaction and visualization!

  8. The Web Ahead #70: Data Visualization with Scott Murray

    We are collecting more data now than ever, and freely sharing some datasets on the open web. Web technology has the power for us to present complex data interactively. How should you go about a data visualization project?

  9. Humans Are Only a Self-driving Car’s Way of Making Another Self-driving Car

    Over 10,000 years ago we lived in balance with the network. Since then we’ve tried to control, rule and bend it to our whims. In all that time, we’ve never asked ourselves if we’re building something that controls us?

    Brian Suda is an informatician, which is definitely a real word and not just something he made up once. It is perfectly cromulent.

    Brian lives and works in Reykjavík by way of Edinburgh by way of St. Louis. He’s been living in Iceland long enough that he can correctly pronounce Eyjafjallajökull. That’s quite an impressive party trick …unless the party is in Iceland.

    Brian is a data hound, moving from project to project, always finding interesting ways to expose and represent the data exhaust of our network engine. He built one of the earliest microformats parsers and has written a book on Designing With Data.

    Together with Aitor Garcia, Brian has formed Analog. Their first project involves the production of Kickstarter-funded notebooks beautifully embossed with geographical data.

    At some point, he plans to graph all the world‘s baked goods on a hypercube of bread.
