Presentation II: Design Directions

The purpose of the second presentation was to present two design directions to outside critics.

I expanded my data visualization research to include artists such as Laurie Prick, Ladislav Suntar, Fritz Kahn, WEB Dubois, and Valentina D’Efillipo.

My first takeaway from the presentation feedback was that at the moment 3/4 of my selected perceptions revolved around gender. The fourth one, diversity, seemed to not fit in the current structure.

Additionally, the guest critics were more responsive to the idea of hand drawn data visualizations. They thought the craft created a level of personal touch that mirrored my personal connection to speech and debate.

My takeaways from watching other presentations and listening to their feedback were that I should start iterating more spreads and data visualizations, as well as working in black and white or lorem ipsum to better control the flow of my book at these early stages.
