MDes/MPS Communication Design Studio: Visualizing Patterns


Tagged as
We’ve all seen data visualizations—some of them effective; many of them simply pleasing graphics. Students investigated the pros and cons of contemporary data visualizations and studied common conventions including visual cues, coordinate systems, and scales. At the same time they collected data in which they were eager to discover patterns and highlight relationships. Students realized their discoveries as interactive information visualizations, paying close attention to how people enter, move through, and layer content. Moving beyond the status quo, students focused specifically on the forms that they used to represent their data. They created visuals that had close cognitive connections to the information itself, which aided quick understanding without continually cross-referencing a key.
