Design with Data

Data is not traditionally an inherent aspect of a designer's toolkit, but here at Amplitude and Stitch Fix, we think designers should be using data all the time. Data can help you define and measure goals, inform and validate your design decisions, and demonstrate the business value of your work.

Join us for a night of honest conversation, real stories of how we use data in our design work, and actionable insights you can incorporate into your workflow. Most importantly, you'll leave with a strong understanding of how to couple qualitative research with quantitative data to influence the way you measure impact.

Check in & Mingle

Data, Designed

  • 389 5th Ave, Suite 300 New York, NY 10016 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Data pros, become better designers.

Designers, dive into data.

Bring your data to life using innovative visualization techniques in this one-day workshop unlike any other, and learn from world leaders that come from two sides of data visualization: data science and design. Explore styles, techniques, and best practices to create meaningful and beautiful visualizations.

As the amount and speed of data grows at ever-increasing rates, being able to visualize and communicate data and data analysis has become more and more important. Organizations that are tasked with producing, releasing, and analyzing large amounts of data can more effectively do so by understanding how to visualize their data. In this full-day workshop, you will learn the important underpinnings of the science and design process behind data visualization and how to effectively communicate your work.

This workshop will provide you with the core skills needed to conceptualize, plan, and develop data visualization products. Taught by world-renowned leaders in the field—Stefanie Posavec and Jonathan Schwabish—this full-day workshop will inspire you to push beyond your own limits so you can create great, effective visualizations. Step away from your keyboard and enjoy some fresh space for your hands and mind: the entire workshop will be off-screen, using nothing more than basic drawing materials and office supplies.

Working in groups, the instructors will guide you through the analysis of a dataset to the design and implementation of your own custom visualization method. You will expand your graphic knowledge, learn best practices, and discover different and innovative ways to communicate your data and analysis. Posavec and Schwabish will offer insights into the design principles that are integral to creating a successful visualization, regardless of function, medium, or context.

No coding skills, design skills, or data skills needed: the only requirement is an interest in data visualization!
