TOPIC FOR THE TUES 3/19 Seattle study group:
Main theme: Color: what it's good for, how to use it to visually represent change, comparisons and differences
- Gallery Walk: Look at datavis/infographics and evaluate how they use color; as we look at these we'll create our own set of guidelines & principles for using color with data
- Dataset Challenge: We'll take a small dataset, create datavis using the color guidelines & principles we just defined. I'll provide the paper and markers, you be ready to play...hmmm maybe I'll bring fingerpaints......
Assignment: Bring an infographic or datavis that uses color either successfully or unsuccessfully; be ready to talk about how it uses color, how well it works and why.
If anyone has a work-in-progress and would like some feedback from the group, please let me know!
What to bring: fully-charged laptop,
