How Self-Employed Data Visualization Designers Make a Living




[ad_1]

I was invited to speak at DataVizLive London in May 2020. The conference organizer reached out to me after hearing about my article of the same name published in Nightingale (https://medium.com/nightingale/how-self-employed-data-visualization-designers-make-a-living-23dc00ea5264). In this article, I talk to 4 designers to understand how they are building their careers and how they make their income from dataviz.

In this video, I expand on my article and add more insights and talk about things I’ve implemented since I wrote the article.

I recorded this video separately after the talk to upload for the general public to view.
