493 flashback : we saw 4 out of the 6 best viz of the year!

wordcloudLast Fall term in DES 493 Project 1 we saw an extensive compilation of case studies of data visualizations, based on students’ and instructor’s research. 4 of this cases were consider among the top 6 viz of the year by Flowingdata.com : wordle, Radiohead house of cards, Last FM streamgraphs and I Want You to Want Me. We faced a challenging project then, making a new meaningful visualization widget inspired in what we researched, and we achieved the goal indeed: proof of this is the participation of 5 projects in the WAVE exhibition “Blurring Boundaries”. We were in tune with one the most important trends in design today!
