Data visualisation training from introductory to specialist

Adam Frost and Tobias Sturt of Add Two offer bespoke data visualisation training to suit all needs. Our core offer, based on our long-running Guardian Masterclass, provides a general introduction to all aspects of modern information design. 

Moving through the four key components of good data viz practice (Data, Story, Chart, Design), we suggest best practice examples and share tried-and-tested advice on how to make your data stories meaningful and engaging. We cover both static graphics and interactive dashboards. Each course includes two hands-on workshop sessions, based on client data wherever possible.

We also provide a range of other courses - including Data Visualisation in Powerpoint and Interactive Storytelling. Alternatively, we can create entirely bespoke courses, based on specific client challenges, or offer quick hour-long introductions to data visualisation as a design practice.
