Analyzing/Presenting Data/Information:
An online video course taught by Edward Tufte

The online video course is open for sign-ups.

Topics covered in this one-day online course include:

Fundamental data analysis/design strategies: diagrams, data visualizations, maps, images, text, tables, videos, small multiples, sparklines, medical interfaces, sentences and paragraphs. Future of information displays: 4K, 6K video-maps and stop-action moving in time.

Practical real examples: medicine, business and finance, NASA, medical research, science and engineering, and a 40-page chapter from Seeing with Fresh Eyes on data analysis when the truth matters.

How to make meetings smarter and shorter - teaching, very large meetings, medical appointments, hearings, small groups making decisions. How to improve both the content and credibility of presentations.

Spectatorship: How to be a smart consumer of presentations, assessing their credibility and content.

323,000 people from 1994 to 2020 attended continuously changing live versions of the ET course Presenting Data and Information. But now we have an online course video. This course can be viewed anytime, and students receive all 5 ET books in advance by mail - for study hall and reading during the course. The online video is closely keyed to the books, with short reading throughout the course.

Edward Tufte teaches the entire course.

Each student receives all five ET books on information design:

Inge Druckrey's new book
Modern Pioneers in Typography and Design:
Anna Simons, Edward Johnston,
Rudolf von Larisch, F. H. Ehmcke

In the early 1900s, good typefaces were scarce, books poorly crafted and tasteless, type design a dead end, formal handwriting disconnected from origins of broad-edged pens and brushes, tools that shaped Roman letterforms for 2000 years.

Then four modern pioneers of design and typography created new modern typefaces, fresh interest in letterforms, beginnings of modernism. This book traces the far-reaching influence of these artists in Europe and the United States. This book provides discoveries and insights to the historical achievements in graphic design and typography.

"This book celebrates the work of four great teachers of calligraphy and lettering in the first half of the twentieth century and their influence on generations of students. Their pioneering studies of historical manuscript hands and the tools used to write stimulated a revival of calligraphy, ornamental lettering, and design of printing types and books. The next best thing to having taken a class from Edward Johnston, Anna Simons, Rudolf von Larisch, F. H. Ehmcke would be to read this inspiring book and revel in its beautiful illustrations."   Matthew Carter, CBE, MacArthur Fellow, type designer and 'the most widely read person in the world' considering the amount of text set in his fonts Verdana, Georgia, Tahoma, Bell Centennial, Galliard...

"Inge Druckrey is the only person who could have written this important book. There are many places where I was so caught up in her comments and conclusions that I forgot I was supposed to be commenting! The illustrations are magnificent. This is a major contribution to the lettering arts."  Kris Holmes, calligrapher, type designer, teacher, and President of Bigelow & Holmes, a typeface design studio. With Charles Bigelow, Kris Holmes designed more than 100 digital typefaces - Lucida Grande(for Apple OS X), Wingdings, Monaco, Geneva, TeX User Group...

“An absolutely beautiful film. It picks up where Helvetica left off.
Inge Druckrey's wonderful teaching is an inspiration.”  Luke Geissbuhler,
cinematographer of Helvetica
  “A great story beautifully told.”  Ken Carbone
