Create a cool data visualisation

It’s the best storytellers that history remembers. They’re the ones whose information we still have and use. Ancient Greek plays, Roman myths, Norse sagas, Arabic tales and Oriental fables all stay with us because the underlying point of the stories still rings true. They’re good stories.

This is what you need to achieve with your visualisations – you need to tell a memorable story. I’d even argue that if you’re starting by creating visualisations, you’re starting in the wrong place! You can’t write Shakespeare on your first try, so why not take a step back and focus on the basics?
