The visualization of information and its design is the medium in which Trineo - a creative duo formed by Paula Erre and Darío Katzev - move with ease and freedom. In this course they will teach you how to use the design, exploring new communication possibilities, to present data and generate new reading levels that will hook your interlocutor.

Using the visual aspect as a vehicle, you will learn to call the attention of an active, avid and curious reader, waving his eyes to be engaged in reading and decoding the piece; trying to contribute, through the schematic, an added value to your infographics.
