Today Bex explain on how we should visualize our data to make perceiving our data information easier by our audience. The lesson has given me a further understand from last week’s reading. John W. Tukey claims that “The greatest value of a picture is when it forces us to notice what we never expected to see.” The research was shown that data we are not recommended to use more than 6 colors in one figure, by including more color, we are adding layers for an audience to process the information (Duke University, 2017).
We also learn about Persona. Research claims that “Personas introduce complex data about users in a way that can be easily understood and use to make informed design choices.” It includes their interest, motivation, demographic data, technical ability and more.
I attended “Green Drinks” this week, an informal discussion on an environment. It was a great session as I have learned extra knowledge about Environment Planning – a process of facilitating decision making to carry out land development to achieve the sustainable outcome. It has also put my networking skills in practice and successfully got the contact of the CEO of Coller Project – Dave Coleman.
