Are you ready to take your Tableau dashboards to the next level visually? Then this workshop is for you!

Chantilly Jaggernauth, VP of Training & Data Visualization at Lovelytics and Tableau Zen Master, shares her visualization design process and concepts for creating stunning dashboards in Tableau. Over the course of the day, participants will learn 5 elements of her design process – purpose, flow, typography, color, and art. By the end of the session, attendees will know how to: leverage a design requirements document to capture top KPIs, determine dashboard styles based on the audience and key stakeholders, create a layout with clear hierarchies and grid-like structures, construct dashboard wireframes/templates directly in Tableau, use color effectively to engage and highlight content, and incorporate custom icons/images to reinforce the dashboard’s subject matter.

Each design concept includes hands-on exercises completed in Tableau. Upon completion of each exercise, feedback is provided. This workshop is for Tableau users who have conquered the analytical phase and are now ready to conquer the design phase.
