If there is one thing I’ve learned from working with clients, not everyone loves raw data files as much as I do. Where I see interesting patterns and captivating brand stories, many see endless rows of numbers and percentages that are difficult to absorb. Thus, one area I’ve been trying to improve is how to translate the insights I find in data sets into engaging visuals for clients, as these visuals can simplify and enhance understanding of study findings. Regardless of how compelling a particular data set is for the brand, if no one is able to fully understand the insights, then no story is really told.
