The Glamour of Graphics

Have you ever looked at a beautiful chart and thought: wow, I wish I could make something like that!

 It might seem like some people have an innate design sensibility that you don’t. It’s easy to think, “I’m a data person, not a designer. I’m never gonna be able to make beautiful data viz.”

 But here’s the secret: anyone can make beautiful data viz.

Will Chase is a journalist at Axios who has worked for years to hone the craft of designing data viz.

 In this course, which builds on Will’s 2020 talk of the same name, he’ll give you a peek behind the curtain showing you how he creates beautiful data viz and showing you how to do it too, all while working in R.
