To better present your ideas and projects, it’s essential to know how our minds perceive information. Only by understanding this can we develop solutions to decode complex information in simple and beautiful ways. Katya Kovalenko specializes in creating graphic visualizations that help companies articulate what their product is about.

In this course, learn basic design and hierarchy principles for creating graphs, charts, diagrams, and other visual tools to help you visualize an idea or a concept.

This is Katya’s second course on Domestika, after Principles of Presentation Design, in which she teaches how to design beautiful and effective presentations from scratch.

Take a close look at how human brains perceive information. Then, get to know some general design and alignment principles.

Constantly being in contact with visual languages has made us understand them very well, but make it challenging to speak fluently. To solve this, learn about some different types of graphs and diagrams that are commonly used to visualize information.

Learn about the process of creating a visualization in three essential steps: sketching, prototyping, and refining.

Finish the course by understanding how to apply your designs to other creative projects.
