Workshop Data visualization design
by Jan Willem Tulp

Thuesday 29th May 10.00-16.00 u. € 120,-

Jan Willem Tulp is a Data Experience Designer from The Hague. From his one-man business TULP, he develops & designs data visualizations for clients all around the world. His work contains visualizations for journals such as the Scientific American & Nature where scientific research is made  more accessible in a visual way in order to reach a broader public. Moreover, he has developed a visualization for Google about inauguration speeches & for ESA he has made an interactive visualization with which several aspects of the star catalogue Hipparcos can been seen.

One of the most important skills for visualization design is knowing how to design, and being able to critically evaluate your own design or that of others. Skills to use tools to create a visualization are of course very important, too. But just being an expert in a tool does not guarantee the correctness, quality and aesthetics of your design. Tools are a means to an end. This workshop is designed to improve your fundamental visual literacy, and data visualization design skills. It’s about why visualizations are designed the way they are, what makes a good design and what doesn’t, how to improve a visualization design, create alternative designs and how to critically evaluate a visual representation of data

Workshop Designing wallpaper and printing on the risograph by Loes van Oosten

During this workshop, you will design a design for wallpaper and print it on the risograph. A combination of letterpress and stencil machine.

For the design you will gouge a motif out of rubber and make beautiful prints in black on white paper using ink pads. Stamping or block printing is a form of relief printing, in which a block of wood, linoleum or rubber is gouged as a stamp and is printed in a pattern on paper. To make a good impression, research, experiment and technique are required. The more you practice, the more beautiful the prints will be.

We then print the design for the wallpaper in color on the risograph. The end result will be a roll of wallpaper in one or two colors. The risograph looks like a copier but it is not. A master will create a stencil of your design. For example, you can print a black-and-white design in a color and print additional colors over it. The basis for making designs is explained on the basis of the booklet ‘‘patronen maken, doe je zo!’ written and designed by Loes.

In this booklet you can find the theory of making a repeating pattern explained step by step. This workshop is fun for both beginners and advanced users … you do not have to be able to illustrate to make a beautiful design. Roll up your sleeves and make beautiful things! Loes is an illustrator and surface pattern designer. She has a passion for traditional techniques and makes handmade stamps, screen prints and, among other things paper cuttings. Her designs always have a handmade origin and are used for paper, textiles and packaging. You might know her work from the Flow and packaging at Albert Heijn. Loes is currently developing her own wallpaper line.
