Is information beautiful?

A postgraduate project exploring three data visualisation case studies, chosen to represent different kinds of potential issues with data visualisation, and to trial compromises in information design. I looked into whether the data these graphics are based on was credible and comprehensive, whether they effectively tell the story they set out to, and whether they could tell this more effectively or differently with a different arrangement.

I proposed a few redesigns to highlight design decisions that have been made and some ways in which the visual design shapes the viewer’s interpretation of the information.
