We hope you are having a good summer. Maybe you're taking it a little easy, maybe you're working harder than ever. This month we have Data Visualiser Jane Pong who is going to tell us all about Data Visualisation in the News. If you're looking for some inspiration or want to know more about visualising news, join us on Thursday August 10 at the Hive Wan Chai for a great talk and meeting other web enthusiasts.
This meetup is free! 💸
Data Visualisation in News: the creative process
News organisations are increasingly recognising the power of visual formats in communicating facts and stories.
In this talk, Jane explores ways in which newsrooms approach journalism in the digital age, by engaging the audience through data visualisation and interactive news technology. She describes some of the processes and tools behind producing data visualisations in a news context.
Jane Pong is a data visualisation journalist at the Financial Times in Hong Kong, where she specialises in producing data-related information graphics. Previously, she was a graphics editor at Reuters and South China Morning Post.
With a unique background in both science and arts, Jane designs visualisation tools that help the reader in finding patterns and stories in data. Her work attempts to bring beauty to scientific rigor and form to artistic introspection.
