Proposal for enterprise-wide education around roll-out of new IT strategy
To communicate data and statistics visually, the designer first needs to understand the data themselves, then find ways in which to inform an audience via visual design.
If somebody wanted to modify their behaviour, how could they better understand and manage their own anger? In this project, data was collected and tabulated over a period of time and results were represented visually in a striking yet meaningful and concise way. Angry outbursts were given their own visual identity, much like a logo, so that "pop out prompts' could be used, like signs and stickers, and placed in problem environments identified by the research. The resulting insights brought a deeper understanding of mitigating problems and facilitated change for the user.
How should an earthquake look?
To best visualise an earthquake, we need to first consider the experience before designing how it might look.
As a quake emanates from below the earth’s surface, a user’s experience of one is inexorably linked with this unsettling sensation.
In order to enable a user to quickly identify earthquakes close to their location and to visualise their frequency as well as comparative intensity, a design decision was made to depict the energy both below and above the earth’s surface. Accentuating the vertical scale of the quake events in this manner makes it easier to decipher the variation in intensity between the events.
