Let’s continue with data visualization. I highly recommend you to follow giorgia lupi He is an award-winning information designer. You will understand it when you see his drawings and projects. What I like most about this post is the quote below;
Drawing becomes design when you start tracing lines, symbols and structures that help rationalize thoughts and envision a possible solution to a design problem, drawing becomes design when it’s used as a tool in the process of visual planning and organizing the choices made during the development of a project.
Drawing becomes design. It can start with a line or a symbol, it is in your sketchbook. Or it can start with a tool that you feel comfortable with. All tools are there to shape your personal visual understanding. Try them!
See the world through layers and categories, it will help! Take notes while you are sitting on a train, look at the window, write the types of trees, the number of people, and look, how colorful their shirts. And then, ask questions about your numbers; are those colors related with the season? Maybe… Check the hour, note it. You can find your location, note it down also. Create your own map, create your own game. It will change the way you see the world step by step.
