Hello. For the infographics class, I was thinking that it could be worthwhile to start by examining a range of approaches to presenting complex situations through static graphic means. Through that we could talk about conventions, strategies, and limiltations of such images. I am interested in the ways that information-rich and carefully constructed images could be used to advance research and design agendas rather than simply documenting existing designs or re-presenting data in another format.
Attached are some images from a range of sources that might serve as starting points. What do you all think? Suggestions are most welcome!
