As a part of the ESRC 2018 Festival of Social Science, we facilitated a workshop on Data Comics. The workshop, built from previous masterclasses and interactive programmes, explored the elements of comics, principles of data visualisation, and, of course, definitions and principles of data comics (Bach et al. 2017).
Below you can download a PDF version of the pocket size booklet we provided as a takeaway to the workshop participants. Use this guide to help create your own data comics. And, if anyone does use it, we would love to see or hear about your own data comics!
The guide was produced in partnership with Bournemouth University, Public Health Dorset and the ERSC Festival of Social Science. Illustrated by Alexandra P. Alberda.
