Data design (or “data visualization”) is the art of displaying information in a way that is easy to consume and easy to understand.
What You’ll Learn
Envato Tuts+ instructor Craig Campbell will take you through the full process of creating several different types of chart in Chart.js. You'll start by creating a simple line chart and applying various styles. Then you'll do the same with other charts, such as bar charts, pie charts, and doughnut charts.
You'll also learn some skills that will really make your work stand out, such as adding animation effects, and creating more advanced charts such as radar charts and polar area charts.
Here are some free lessons from this course, as a preview of what you can expect:
