As a group project we had to create an interactive infographic in our Visual Aesthetics class. Our group was given the category of economic figures to choose from. We settled on a comparison of the Great Depression to the current Recession in the categories of unemployment stock market collapses, and housing values. Our design goal was to create a contrast of new to old with the comparison of the data on each page. Check out the final version here.
I think the success of this project was the overall professional look of the work and the visualization of the unemployment rates in particular. I think there are a few design inconsistencies in the piece like color schemes matching and I also think that the housing page could use a bit more development. On the whole I think it shows progress and is successful at visualizing the data.
