Data Visualisation: Final Designs

April 23, 2014 § Leave a comment

Professional Practice

After many different designs and development, I have finally come to six solid designs which I feel are a good way of visually representing my data. To do this I have used a different technique for each poster that I feel is visually interesting enough and that ties down the meaning I want to get across with my data. I came up with a title for each design and used a specifically chosen colour scheme through so as to be consistent. I am much happier with these designs; I think they look more detailed and sophisticated compared to my first attempts. I also added an interactive element to one of the posters – this was developed from one of my previous ideas (barcode bookshelf) which I incorporated into one particular poster where you can scan the barcodes to find out my most read books in the data set. The final poster is a series of web designs which I had the idea to create as an off shoot of the amazon book section of the website – a book cataloging service.

Here are the results from an online survey I sent out to 18 – 21 year olds on Facebook to look at reading trends amongst the student age group. The questions were all based on the aspects of data that I had collected. These results will be used in my final designs as part of the collection. I decided to use this in the end as part of my poster series – it reflects another aspect of book data so thought it would be quite interesting to use.

These diagrams are called tree maps. Using the same colour coding and scheme, I developed my own to show each category of data but also, using a texture I split each aspect into male and female authorship ratio.

I developed this idea further by making it more clear where the points lay within the quantity of pages – this was done simpy by labelling the points on the radars. Along with the key that will feature on the bottom of the poster, it should be clearer what this image is trying to depict.

Here are screenshots of a visualisation technique I plan to use for one of my data sets. I created these polar grids in Illustrator. The coloured lines represent the number of pages. Each stem on the radar represents one of 97 books I have read from my collection. The circles show how many pages each book has.

I have chosen a colour code specifically to use throughout my designs. This is to make my designs appear consistent and give them a more finished look. The colour code will also compliment the chosen house style.
