Convert your research into visual stories.

You care about your research and results. You want to share them with the world. The best tool you can use is story. Stories stick. Stories stick better when supported by beautiful, clear visuals. Visually powerful stories tailored to your audience’s knowledge and interests should be an integral part of your communication and funding application strategy.


Design Principles

Hardcore design theory! Focus on the “why” of design. Learn how to minimize your audience’s cognitive load, so they can save capacity to process and understand your key message.

Data Visualization with Microsoft Excel

Excel is a great tool for building graphs. Move beyond distracting default settings and make dumbbell dot plots, panel bars, and more visuals that will communicate your data story better.

PowerPoint Magic for Dynamic Presentations

Put an end to death by PowerPoint. Build dynamic presentations that use delicate animations to strengthen your story. Your PowerPoint will follow you instead of leading you, plus you’ll build in shortcuts and paths that will help you move smoothly through your presentation. Bye bye, scrolling through slides!

Preparing Readable Reports
