My coworkers and I presented a talk at the UXPA Boston conference last week. We had a great turnout (300+ people, with standing room only), and got some enthusiastic responses to our discussions of how UX, UI and data visualization can work together to make charts clearer and easier to read.
Join us as we discuss the unique challenges that data visualization presents for product design, and how we incorporate the role of data visualization designer into our team. We will discuss how carefully-crafted user persona help to structure our design decisions for data visualization and how chart task analysis can help to marry product analytical requirements with clean, clear user experiences and support users in understanding complex data. Focusing on specific user tasks informs the design of thoughtful chart interactions and advanced UI systems that help the user to focus on one aspect of the data at a time, making our charts less overwhelming and simpler to read.
