Join this course to learn and create thoughtful narratives & infographics for your design and ideas. We will guide you to generate a visual vocabulary, to interpret information graphically through a simple yet effective storytelling exercise. Infographics, rather than plain text, are more effective in supporting emotional connection and empathic communication in your presentations. Your mentors for the course will be Architect Gary Gilson from Fosters + Partners and Architect Pulkit Gupta. Below is a small demonstration of the narrative building process.
