The Design Workshop for Busy Data People

Formerly DiY Data Design

Learn how to design modern professional charts, infographics, reports, digital content, dashboards, and so much more.

My Philosophy: If you want to effectively build your design skills you need practice, exposure, and support. You don't need expensive tools, lots of time, or guilt.

  • Show up and learn. No prep necessary, just come to sessions when you can.
  • You are more creative than you know, but probably out of practice. We have to stretch those muscles.
  • Ask questions. Share your work. Make requests.
  • The tools exist that let us create better designs, faster. And they're FREE.


  • Weekly 60 Minute Live Sessions with Chris - Wednesdays at 3PM Eastern.
  • Binge-able short courses.
  • A growing Canva & Flourish template collection.
  • Recorded session archive with over 50 hours of video.
  • Weekly inspiration newsletter.
  • A community of peers and a private LinkedIn group.
