Workshops Are Beautiful...and (possibly) coming to a city near you!

David McCandless is a London-based data journalist and author of Information is Beautiful and Knowledge is Beautiful. He has published over 500 infographics -- but no pie charts. As he says: 'Love pie. Hate pie-charts.'

This year David is sharing his dataviz process in a series of public workshops he'll be giving around the world. He created a characteristically well-presented digital tabloid newspaper called Workshops are Beautiful as a handout of source material for the workshop.

The workshops are hands on with 'lots of paper and pens and sketching and sharing' so newsprint was a good fit for presenting the material. 'The size and the feel of newspaper makes a nice difference from laminated or bound handouts,' David told us. And bright, bold infographics really pop in a double page spread:

The only way to see the newspaper in full is to attend one of David's workshops - tentative dates can be found on his website. You can also follow Information is Beautiful on Twitter for updates and lots of handsome graphics. Thank you for printing with us!
