Presenting Data and Information

Edward Tufte 'Presenting Data and Information Lecture'

Looking over my notes from an Edward Tufte course . . .

  • Details lead to credibility.
  • Every paragraph, chart, etc., should lend credibility to your argument and give your audience a reason to believe.
  • Great design disappears; it gives itself up to the content.
  • There’s no “right way” to display data. Try a few different approaches.
  • Tables are often better than graphics.
  • Don’t get it original, get it right.
  • Don’t underestimate your audience. Don’t pander or patronize.
