about my thinking behind 'The 8 hats of data visualisation design' I realised that the theme of body parts was emerging strongly.
So here's an alternative perspective on this matter, throwing away the hats and switching on the Frankenstein lab...
This is the super-hero visualisation designer I
want to be.
= the mind
, responsible for thinking, understands how the eye and the brain works...
= the eye
for design, for visual solutions, for colour
= the nose
for a story, the analytical angle to pursue
= the mouth
, to talk and to listen
= the hands
, the builder
= the back
-breaking hard work of data gathering and preparation
= the torso
, brings the whole thing together
= the legs
, sets things in motion
I've taken it too far haven't I...
