Whether it's choosing the wrong charts or graphs, misinterpreting the data, or showing it without context, inaccurate designs can become a source of global scrutiny. To succeed in design and marketing today, one must know how to interpret and properly visualize data. This course, developed and led by Killer Infographics CEO, Amy Balliett, walks you through the ins and outs of creating accurate and compelling data visualizations.
