Data Visualisation Designer

The role of a data visualisation designer consists in converting data and numerical information into a visual format which clarifies that data, presents it in an engaging way and makes it more accessible to a wider audience. They'll produce things like graphs or charts, diagrams, infographics and illustrations to deliver often complex information to us in a way that is easy to understand and visually appealing. This graphical representation of data is used to identify and illustrate trends and patterns, and to convert spreadsheets and reports into easily digestible visuals. A data visualisation designer will have both the creativity to envisage how information might be presented in a visual format, and the mathematics and logics skills to understand and process that data themselves, along with the graphics, art and technology capabilities to ultimately produce the visualisation.
