This studio course examines issues involved with making important information accessible and understandable to its intended audience. Real world problems of poorly presented or obscured information (communication breakdowns) are identified, analyzed and redesigned. Working with real clients, teams of two-to-four students redesign existing information for greater clarity or develop entirely new visualizations for new and useful data. A principal component of this course is to bridge the gap between the academic world and the real world.
