Fall's Guest Lecture: Data Visualization as a Creative Practice
Eric Rodenbeck, CEO & Creative Director of Stamen Design
5–6pm, Sep 11, Art Building Room 133
It’s past time for those of us who do this work to realize that telling stories with data is not a subgenre of computer science, or of anything else for that matter, any more than movies are a subgenre of live theater or photography is a sub genre of painting. Computer science, on its own, has about as much to say about the medium of data visualization as photographic paper engineering has to say about Instagram. Computer science is the technical underpinnings of dataviz, sometimes. Dataviz is the medium.
The event is free and open to public. Space is limited.

Animation Career Review ranks Design programs based on the following criteria:
Depth and breadth of the program
Value as it relates to tuition and indebtedness
This unique program admits every student as a BA Design Studies Major. Upon completion of DsGD 100 and portfolio review, students are eligible to apply for pre-admission to the Graphic Design Program. Once admitted to the program, students will learn how to apply the principles of color, composition, hierarchy, and typography as they relate in the various media—digital, print, motion, 3-D, etc.—that exist in design. Per the school, students will graduate with the ability to “create and develop original concepts, build prototypes, integrate feedback, carry projects through to the production process, and apply principles of visual communication as they relate to reaching audiences, the role of design in society, and the ability to work cooperatively.”
Graduates will show “fluency in the breadth of disciplines that graphic design encompasses, with deep exploration into information architecture, user interface design, interactive design, motion graphics, iterative image-making, exhibition design and typeface design. They will “demonstrate understanding of the design process, design thinking and professional standards and practices, including real-project learning scenarios and a transition into preparing a portfolio to enter the workforce.”
