When I really realized that I love the visualization of data even more than just the analytics of data, I went around searching for information on how you might become a data visualization designer/specialist. Especially if you do not have a degree in a field such as design. I’ve gathered resources on book, tutorials and blogs which I wanted to share with you.
The first two foldouts below are a collection of blogs and interviews. The top one is a list of posts which I feel have something useful to say on learning Data Visualization, roughly ordered to how relevant it is. The second fold-out is a collection of posts and interviews in which amazing designers tell more about how they tackle a design. Knowing how they do their work gives you an idea about how you could structure your own.
