A dollar bill stamped with fact-based infographics from the Occupy George project.
Ready to respond to requests of “Show me the data!” with more than a sad little bar graph? The Mediabistro mothership is now recruiting would-be data visualizers for an online course in infographics that can “engage an audience in your brand, cause, or mission.” Guided by veteran creative director Sascha Mombartz, whose resume includes stints at The New York Times and Google, students will get up to speed with online tools (we’re looking at you Many Eyes) and develop a robust spec for a data visualization. The infographical fun starts next week, and if you register by tomorrow (no later than 11:59 p.m. EST on September 12), we’ll throw in a free webcast. Use promo code WEBCAST at checkout. Then use all of the dollar bills you save to circulate your newly created infographics.
