I’m working on a Graphic Design question and need guidance to help me study.
The purpose of this assignment is to critique visualizations and identify design elements of visualizations that support analysis and communication.
Answer the following questions for each visualization: 1. What is the “gist”? And why? 2. What is the main “story” and how is this different from the gist? 3. What task(s) does the visualization enable? 4. What data is represented in this visualization? How is each piece of data visually encoded? 5. How do the color choices address the above? 6. What design principles to enhance cognition are at work in this visualization? Be specific. 7. What might you do differently to better support understanding?
