How can design help us communicate data easily to users? Where does this stem from? What methods of design are easy for users to engage with? What should we be trying to achieve with these designs?

The cultural sector is a big adopter of open data and semantic web technologies. They have embraced the ideas and are weaving them into everything they do. So, who is doing what? What data sets are there available? And how have these been presented to the public.

Using case studies from the cultural sector, we will explore the practical challenges associated with complex UI designs. Looking at work-in-progress through to finished products we will discuss best practice, finding innovation, and the challenges of working with data sets.
