FORENSIC DESIGN ASSESSMENTS
This task relates to a sequence of assessments that will be repeated across Chapters 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. Select any example of a visualisation or infographic, maybe your own work or that of others. The task is to undertake a deep, detailed â€˜forensicâ€™ like assessment of the design choices made across each of the five layers of the chosen visualisationâ€™s anatomy. In each case your assessment is only concerned with one design layer at a time.
For this task, take a close look at the colour choices:
- Start by identifying all the applications of colour deployed, listing them under the headers of 1) data legibility, 2) editorial salience, and 3) functional harmony.
- How suitable are the choices and deployment of these colours? If they are not, what do you think they should have been?
- Go through the set of â€˜Influencing factorsâ€™ from the latter section of the bookâ€™s chapter to help shape your assessment and to possibly inform how you might tackle this design layer differently
- Also, considering the range of potential applications of colour, what would you do differently or additionally?
