For our second year module, Information Design, we were each given a wide ranging set of data and asked to convey the data in a visual way using Adobe Flash (now called Animate).
For my set of data I was given relationships, and data related to marriages, love and geographical locations. I narrowed down the fields that I wanted to cover based on the information that I thought correlated and went together. I eventually chose three different scenarios, and went about conveying them in a simple, but easy to understand format.
Our final outcome had to show different levels of meaning and data, so that the viewer would be able to grasp and understand what the design is conveying. Knowing we had a short timeframe to concept, design and build the final information design, I decided to go with a minimal yet clear design, using colour, shapes and graphs to identify different demographics and locations. This was echoed by my tutor who liked the design but also how you can easily see the relationship of the 3 bits of data, and start to see patterns. This was the main objective for the unit, and one in which I think I achieved, after having gaining a first for the project.
