MNKOM-lunch: Designing Science
With information designer Angela Morelli.
In this talk Angela will describe her journey in the world of information visualization where the intersection of text and image, perception and cognition, beauty and function, logic and emotion enables us to create splendid visions, to reveal what hides behind the data and to address effective messages. She will share her experience of how information design and data visualization can help bridge the gap between scientists and their audiences, through deep engagement and collaboration with both.
