Introducing VC 360: A Critical Analysis

SPECIAL DISPATCH: Every month we will take a graphic that has caught our eye and put a VC spin on it; uncovering our unique design and editorial process

VC 360 is a brand new VC+ monthly feature, which will give our members an exclusive look at how our team approaches different charts, graphs, and other visuals. 

In each feature, we will select an interesting graphic from another media outlet or report and highlight how we, as a team, would have approached that topic, talking you through our techniques and modifications.

Behind the Scenes with our New Book: Part 2

SPECIAL DISPATCH: A detailed look at one of the ‘signals’ that will be featured in the book

When most books are published, you are only privy to the final result.

However, we’re taking VC+ members to see what happens behind the scenes.

Last month, we showed members some of the early decisions we had to make on the book. In this month’s edition, VC+ members will get a first look at one of our first confirmed chapters for the book. In addition, we’ll uncover why we chose particular data to represent that ‘signal’, while showing you the process behind creating the visual dashboards that’ll be used in the book.

Publishing date: May 27 (Get VC+ to access)
