(891S20) How to Design Scientific Figures

Workshop for PhD students, 22. April 2020

Figures are not only meant to be eyecatching. They also convey information with a density that words can never attain. Because figures are so powerful in communicating scientific data, extra care should be taken when designing them. In this workshop, you will learn basic design rules and how to apply those rules to your figures.

Learning Outcomes:

  • You understand basic design rules and how to apply them in the design of scientific figures (presentation and group discussion).
  • You know how and why these design rules positively aid in understanding the message of a figure (comparison and discussion of figures).
  • You are able to spot how figures can be improved (trainer input and practical exercise).
  • You know about different color palettes, where to find them, and how to use them (practical exercise).
  • You can identify suitable diagram types/visualisations for your data (group discussion, practical exercise).

What is the first thing scientists look at in scientific articles or on posters? The figures! But they are not only meant to be eye-catching. They also convey information with a density that words can never attain.

Because figures are so powerful in communicating scientific data, extra care should be taken when designing them. In this workshop, you will learn basic design rules and how to apply those rules to your figures.

These universal concepts can be transferred to all kinds of scientific figures – from maps, diagrams or plots to schematic visualizations.

Requirements:

Please bring one to three figures and a laptop with everything necessary to change the figure.

Evaluation note: In this seminar an evaluation will take place.
