The Process  / 

Welcome to issue #160 of The Process, the newsletter for FlowingData members on how the charts get made. I’m Nathan Yau, and this week I imagine how one might start a freelance career in visualization these days — and probably provide terrible advice along the way.

To access this issue of The Process, you must be a member. (If you are already a member, log in here.)

The Process is a weekly newsletter where I evaluate how visualization tools, rules, and guidelines work in practice. I publish every Thursday. Get it in your inbox or access it via the site.

You also gain unlimited access to hundreds of hours worth of step-by-step visualization courses and tutorials, which will help you make sense of data for insight and presentation. Source code and datasets are included so that you can more easily apply what you learn in your own work.
