make a little joke on the bar chart is great.
information shoud not have to be quite formal.
PS: A little suggesting——try not cut the head of the body, use different numbers of people may be better.
+ Clear and easy to understand. Great design, I like the idea of the equalizer and the use of little people figurines to show time.
- Would have been awesome if you included a story to the graph, something that would connect the number of hours slept with an event, activity etc. As a Romanian expression says, your visualization is missing the “salt”, something to add a bit of flavor!
I don’t know how realistically possible it is to capture the sleeping postures during the night but it would be interesting if this information can be replaced by the repetitive ‘standing man’ posture. I like the visual design of it.
simple, clear, and visually compelling!
maybe we could use the little people figure to tell something more, but again that could compromise the beauty of simplicity
I really enjoyed looking at your graph. I think as others have noted, using something other than a lot of small people (maybe the one person filling up like you mentioned in class) would be a bit more clear. That being said, great aesthetic!
Mike, wonderful color scheme and layout that immediately draws you in. The title is crisp clear and directed allowing you to immediately recognize what is shown.
As others have mentioned I get a little confused by breaking up the image into people. It ends up taking away from some of the simple beauty.
I loved the simple clarity of your visual, particularly that it reminded me of a digital stereo equalizer. It made the visual familiar, let my eyes unfocus a little, and highlighted the pattern(s) in the data.
The only drawback I saw was that the equalizer bars were constructed from people which stole some attention. Unless relevant to your point, I think you could replace the people with small bars/lines.
Michael I thought this was fantastic, I immediately thought of daft punk due to the colouring and I suppose that feeds into the equaliser reference that the other guys picked up on. I really enjoyed the strong graphic element, and the font for your lettering really engages.
I will echo the previous comments saying thumbs up for the visual clarity, modern somewhat futuristic feel and look. Excellent choice of font and colour.
I do agree with the previous comments that using multiple figures might be misleading and that the concept you described in class might be a way to overcome that. I would also add that the title text sits a bit heavy (space almost equidistant from the space between the columns?). Taking that a bit further up would in my opinion help this beautiful but heavy font breathe.
I liked how you chose to show Hao’s purchases up against the nutrition chart – I think that’s an interesting way to look at it! I was slightly confused at first as to what it was showing – initially I thought it showed that his purchases matched up perfectly with the chart, and then I realized it was just about opposite! It might have been useful color coding it differently to maybe show the categories he purchased in one color, then those he didn’t in another? Overall I like the idea behind it a lot.
