Hi Sean, 

I'll suggest having a look at this book: Data Visualisation: A Handbook for Data Driven Design by Andy Kirk

"With over 200 images and extensive how-to and how-not-to examples, this new edition has everything students and scholars need to understand and create effective data visualisations.

Combining ‘how to think’ instruction with a ‘how to produce’ mentality, this book takes readers step-by-step through analysing, designing, and curating information into useful, impactful tools of communication."
