David McCandless: The beauty of data visualization
Some quotes that stuck with me:
- Relative figures are needed to connect to other data so we can see a fuller picture that can lead to us changing our perspective.
- Data can change your perspective and change your mind midstream.
- Design is about solving problems and providing elegant solutions. Information design is about solving information problems.
- Visualizing information can give us a very quick solution to problems. We can get clarity or the answer to a simple problem very quickly.
