Visualization and 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 Center for Computational Science offers a Visualization Consulting Service. We will be happy to sit with you, look at your work, discuss your plans, and offer some advice. We won’t do the design for you, but we can offer advice on visual design, tools, tutorials, and user experience.



Alyssa Fowers is a Data Analyst, Visualization Designer, and an MFA in Interactive Media student at UM’s School of Communication. Alberto Cairo, PhD, is CCS’ Visualization Program Director, and an Associate Professor and Knight Chair in Visual Journalism at the School of Communication.



  • Need a second opinion? We can provide feedback on graphics in progress.
  • Don’t know where to start? We can help determine the best ways to show your findings.
  • Want to do it yourself? We can point you to helpful tools, tutorials, and resources.
  • Looking to share knowledge? If you teach a class at the University and you want your students to learn basic visualization principles, we can give a guest lecture.



Drop in for office hours on Wednesdays from 1:30 to 3:30 PM at CCS (Gables One Tower, Suite 600)—no appointment needed! ! Beginning October 22, 2019, we will also have office hours at Richter Library on Tuesdays from 5-7 and on Thursdays from 2-4 PM. If you can’t make office hours or want to have an in-depth discussion, email Alyssa at and Alberto at
