No alternate assignments accepted for this project.


Tufte-Style Graphs


1. Background: If you weren’t in class for the presentation on information design, there is a good write up on Tufte that you can read here: http://www.salon.com/1997/03/10/tufte970310/

The challenger disaster which I referenced is discussed here:http://www.asktog.com/books/challengerExerpt.html with charts from the engineers who tried to stop the launch, and the redesigned chart never saw, which would have convinced them not to launch on that day.

2. Research data online for a subject of your choice. Create an excel spreadsheet that compares data as it changes over time. (Example: The average temperature in Detroit compared to the temperature in Miami from July through August.)

3. Create a well-designed chart from the data. The chart should be formatted in a way that uses the least amount of data ink to convey the information, and presents it in as clear a way as possible. For formatting - think about the background area, the gridlines, outlines around the bars, and font choices. Which elements are important, and how do we make that stand out? Which elements are NOT important and what can we do so they don't become a distractions?

4. Using the same data, create a second chart that demonstrates BAD design.

5. Post both your charts here. There are several ways to convert the charts to jpgs. The one that gives you the most control is to copy the chart in excel, start a new file in photoshop, paste the chart into the new file, and then save it for the web in the usual way.



Objectives: Understanding how to use charts to effectively communicate information, and demonstrate an understanding of how the media or advertisers can use charts to mislead the public.

Grading 4 points total. 
2: well designed graph 
2: misleading/poorly designed chart

The second is the bad graph, which fully covers all the other percentages, which is pretty funny to be honest. At least in my opinion, who would use this graph other than a person trying to scam you for your money?
