Event description: 
We live in a data-driven world, where effective graphics are key to the delivery of information. When a graphical piece of information is done right, you can’t tell that there is design behind it—information flows to the viewer clearly and efficiently.
Prior to her book, Dona Wong was the graphics director at The Wall Street Journal, where she was responsible for setting the graphics standard for all feature and breaking news graphics. Previously, she served as a business graphics editor at The New York Times. Dona is an expert in conceptualizing and producing information graphics that are easily understood by millions of demanding readers on a daily basis.
In addition, she has advised Fortune 500 companies and major government agencies on strategic communications. Dona received her M.F.A. in information design from Yale, with thesis advisor Edward Tufte, a pioneer in the field of data visualization.
Lunch will be served.
