Learn to communicate in an attractive and effective way through design

The visualization of information and its design is the medium in which Trineo—creative duo made up of Paula Erre and Dario Katzev—work with ease and freedom. In this online course, learn to use design, exploring new communicative possibilities, to present data and generate new reading levels that will hook your audience.

Using the visual aspect as a vehicle, explore how to attract the attention of an active, avid, and curious reader, and stir their gaze to engage in reading and decoding the piece while trying to contribute an added value to your infographics through the schematic.
