School of Design Alumna Co-Authors Book on Visualizing Financial Data

Julie Rodriguez, an Alumna of Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Design (Industrial Design ’99), has recently co-authored a new book on data visualizations with a focus on finance and business. Rodriguez’s book, Visualizing Financial Data, provides a fresh take on data visualizations with an extensive set of case studies that contrast traditional uses of charts with alternatives that provide more effective representations of the data to produce greater insights.

412-OCTAVIA is a physical installation and web platform designed for the Octopus Garden, a community garden in Pittsburgh. The installation enables users to hear community narratives and also to contribute their own individual narratives. This project leverages tangible, natural interactions that are currently happening in the garden and uses embedded technology to allow users, regardless of age, to engage in the community dialogue.
