“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself.”

  — Oscar Wilde,
The Picture of Dorian Gray

Skills

Adobe Illustrator
Data Visualization

Process

I worked closely with the COO of Kairos Aerospace to determine the best way to show the information. We decided a timeline would be most useful, with different colors to represent departments and line widths to show personnel. These lines could then combine or separate accordingly, and work together within project and area groups.

Reflections

This was my first venture into data visualization, though I was able to draw upon the skills I developed in my Systems class to help me. I learned a lot about how to convey information clearly and succinctly. While I didn’t think I would like it very much, I found it somewhat enjoyable—it felt kind of like solving a puzzle in terms of figuring out what should go where and how to depict certain things.
