Having had artists/designers/people such as Stefanie Posavec and Brendan Dawes visit and lecture during education the idea of generating beautiful pieces of work based on data has always been something I've wanted to get into and this workshop seems to have been a brilliant springboard for that, especially for the more technical side of things.

There is some time to be spent getting used to the way canvas works but I can see how some important messages could be visualised with this approach (or approaches inspired by this).
