Infographics and Data Visualisations Collaboration with RMIT

The complexity of sentencing can present a barrier to community understanding. New design and information technologies enhance our ability to effectively communicate complex ideas through data visualisation and educational graphics (infographics).

In 2016 and 2017, the Council collaborated with the RMIT School of Media and Communication as a Work Integrated Learning industry partner. In both years, all students in the Masters of Communication Design course at RMIT were set the task of developing data visualisations and infographics based on the Council’s statistics (and other crime and justice statistics).

The Council has published a selection of these images on Pinterest.
