Check out The Plot's most popular dataviz tips
Hi, and happy Thursday! This week I’m attending the Information+ conference in Edinburgh 🌧️ While I interact with the amazing dataviz community and learn new things, I still wanted to show up in your inbox at the usual time. But with a different approach.
We often discuss somewhat philosophical questions here on The Plot: feedback, mission, process, etc. But it’s also healthy to go back to basics every once in a while. So this newsletter is a recap of some of the most liked editions from the past. Editions that go back to the fundamental dataviz principles that we (or, rather, I) sometimes put aside.
Let’s dive in!
