I’m doing some form of data visualization learning for 180 days because I need to #JFDI.
p 213-230 The Infographics Gentleman
- Main principles from John Grimwade: tell a order with narrative, order, digestible chunks, and hierarchy. Make sure you don’t lose depth p 213
- Give context, an “annotation layer,” otherwise “you will end up with a visualization that may look really beautiful and intricate, but that will leave readers wondering, ‘What has this thing really told me? What is it useful for?'” p 218
- Don’t start by sketching out on design software or working on a computer-> “You make a lot of art decisions and then trap yourself into them” p 219
