Crafting Visual Stories with Data
Data Story Visual
Start by exploring the data to find the patterns, the trends, the comparisons or the outliers that can be used to craft the story.
The aim of data visualization is to amplify cognition and hence, choosing the right representation is of paramount importance.
Choosing good aesthetics like color and fit for purpose embelishment ensures the audience can understand better.
④ Framing & Transition
To focus attention, the visualisation needs to be framed well and needs to use appropriate transitions as it moves from one view to another.
Framing & Transition
Stories need to be told, through meaningful annotations in the visualisation or through verbal or written messaging.
Stories take the audience through a visual & verbal journey and a flow provides a good narrative structure to do so.
Adding limited interactivity to visualisation to allow the audience to interact and navigate through the story.
