DAE infographics workshop
Who said a bar is a bad environment for studying?
Since we are in close contact with the faculty of our old stomping ground of the Design Academy in Eindhoven, we were asked if we would be interested to host a 2 day workshop for 30 students who were going to embark on an excursion to Marrakesh in Morocco by bus (shudder). The teachers, spotting an opportunity for education during the 20 hour bus ride, assigned the travellers a task. Split into teams of 2/ 3 people, each team was given an equal stretch of the journey between Brussels and Marrakesh, which they would need to present information about whilst travelling through. The faculty thought this would be best done with infographics, and so asked us to give the students a crash course in information visualisation.
It was a lot of fun, it was very busy, and even though we were not aboard the bus, we hear the journey turned out to be very informative!
