Designing a data visualization opens many possibilities in terms of creation of a connection with the people who are going to read them.
The talk will focus on the design process behind a set of data visualization projects characterized by strong differences in terms of represented information and usage context, but with a common ground of interest for the human relationship between designer and user and for a constant visual experimentation.
The projects will be explored through a presentation of the design phases — from data to visualizations, passing through visual inspiration — and of the lessons learnt throughout the processes, with a reflection on how giving shape to data can become a generator of empathy, emotions, and comprehension.
