I'm Nick Visscher, principal owner of Spotlight Impact Data Solutions. In 2013 a friend introduced me to the Evergreen Data blog. I'm not sure I had ever heard the term 'data visualization' before. I was already doing it though (poorly) in my research & evaluation reporting making exploding 3D pie charts and eye-crossing clustered bar graphs that I thought looked 'scientific'. Once I learned how effective data visualizations should look I couldn't unsee the bad data viz I was producing or the bad data viz I saw out in the wild. Everywhere I looked I saw terrible graphs, and awful presentation slides. Death by PowerPoint is a real affliction, but it doesn't have to be!
Great design isn't just about making data look pretty. Well-designed reports and presentations compel your audience to pay attention, help them understand your data with clarity, and motivates them to action.
