Infographic : DVS: “What Makes a Data Visualisation Elegant?”

It was great to recently have the chance to curate a deep-dive discussion about a key topic in data visualisation on the Data Visualisation Society slack channel. My topic of choice was surrounding the issue of how one would recognise and pursue elegance in a data visualisation.

After a short delay, I’ve finally managed to find the time necessary to go through the multiple threads of rich discussions that emerged from this exercise and have formulated some sense of a summary post. It has now been published on the DVS Medium publication ‘Nightingale’. Many thanks to Duncan Geere and Jason Forrest for their editing and publishing assistance.

What do you think?
