    52: How to Keep Your Reader Engaged with Thoughtful Annotations — Featuring Alyssa Fowers

    52: How to Keep Your Reader Engaged with Thoughtful Annotations — Featuring Alyssa Fowers

    I’ve noticed that many of the really engaging graphics have something in common: really thoughtful annotations. Usually, we think of annotations as a way to communicate context (like the title, subtitle, data labels) or point out outliers or specific events.
    But what if we thought of annotations as a tool beyond just context. What if we could use annotations to keep the reader more engaged?
    In this episode, we’ll learn about a recent project by Alyssa Fowers, where she visualized data about protests around the U.S. and the specific things she did to create annotations that made her project more engaging. Let’s go!
