I gave a one day workshop on "The Power of Infographics" to a non-design audience during the CAPA opening weekend. Workshop participants included students, faculty, and visitors (including a well-known investment banker, the CEO of a major pharmaceuticals company, a wellness TV personality, and one of the top corporate bankruptcy attorneys in the United States). I lectured briefly on the history of infographics and how they help us understand complex issues, and concluded with an afternoon exercise in redesigning a prominent lobby menu at McDonald's. I think everyone had a lot of fun with the exercise. The ideas ranged from hilarious to "could-be-implemented-today". I had a blast.
