AIGA Census Data Visualization
An explorative data visualization in two parts: a live, archival site︎, and an accompanying interactive book.
Using data from the AIGA 2019 Design Census, we built a type-forward experience that emphasizes qualitative analysis and highlights the humanity in the data set.
This site is a prototype of a bigger collection, because we couldn’t integrate all 2700+ quotes. We selected ~25 quotes per category to analyze further, and picked phrases that described the main point or theme of each response. If quotes intersected with other categories, we made sure to highlight those phrases as well. (And we made a super-sexy color-coded spreadsheet ↗ ) To find spot words (eg. 18 mentions of “age-ism”), we ran word frequency with the entire corpus.
