Earlier today I had the pleasure of delivering a second webinar presentation for Tableau this year. The title of my talk was ‘The Design of Nothing’. This was about my latest thinking regarding the challenges of displaying nothing (null, zero values), the opportunities of utilising emptiness and the invisibilities connected with the experience of consuming a visualisation. This is an enhanced, updated and expanded version of the same talk I gave originally at OpenVisConf in 2014.
The slides are now available, published on SlideShare, and can be viewed below (if the embed code works, which is does not always). Note that due to the amount of detailed images included in this deck some of the resolution has been compromised in appearance during the uploading process. If you want to watch the video of the talk, you can register for free on Tableau’s website to obtain the link via here.
