Lesson 2 Reflection

In the first lesson, I learned some ideas about visual representation. In my point of view, I really agree that visual representation is much easier and quicker for readers to understand, compared with text representation. That why I like to read comics, rather than fictions. However, I don’t believe that all information is good to be represented visually. For instances, if we would like to represent some statistic data accurately, it would be better to use text to represent such data. Therefore, for my understanding, I think visual representation is good for representing the whole picture of some ideas, whereas text representation is good for representing some accurate data.

During the last lesson, I remember that we were discussing about the differences between information and data. I missed the chance to express my opinion so I would like to mention in my blog. In my point of view, I think data is some objects or texts which have no meaning. For instances, number 5 has no meaning if we do not apply the number to represent something. On the other hand, I think information is representing something which has meaning. For instances, a sentence “who are you?” has a meaning behind. So it should be a information.

Lesson 2 Task: The Earth's Atmosphere

The Earth's Atmosphere: My Design Process with Alan Chan

Step 1 - Sketching

Used 11 sketches on paper to capture different parts of the information.


Step 2 – Preliminary design

Decided to use one slide instead of 10 to represent all the information.


Step 3 – Final design

Made further discussion to refine the preliminary design for final presentation.
