►Visualization & Infographics Consulting
Have you designed some charts recently? Are you planning to? Need to communicate your results in papers, conference posters, or press releases? The Visualization and Infographics team will be happy to sit with you, look at your work, discuss your plans, and offer some advice. The team does not create the design for you, but can offer advice on visual design, tools, tutorials, and user experience.
Drop in for office hours on Wednesdays from 1:30 to 3:30 PM at CCS (Gables One Tower, Suite 600)—no appointment needed, and at Richter Library on Tuesdays from 5-7 and on Thursdays from 2-4 PM.
