So much more than pretty graphs: The value of creating and implementing a dataviz design system in R

NHS-R 2023 Conference | Online talk

October 11, 2023

In this talk, I unpack the process of building the dataviz design system for the Ophelia research study. I cover key questions I needed to ask the lead researcher, colour inspiration, creating colour and ggplot theme functions with added flexibility, all with accessibility and functionality in mind. I also discuss additional components built since the package was initially launched, including an interactive table function and a tooltip styling css string for interactive plots.

The full package documentation can be found here
