Information Consumption and the Laws of Visualization

The Problem

“Visual excellence is that which gives the viewer the greatest number of ideas in the shortest time with the least ink in the smallest space” – Edward Tufte.
Often, it is easy to aggregate data and answer clients’ needs;however, creating a concise story from the visualizations and delivering suitable insights can be more difficult.

In this article, we address these challenges and help you create impactful visuals.
