Hi, I'm Sweta!
I'm a second year ITP student focused on design and development for web and mobile. I'm taking this class because I'm interested in building my own data visualizations and the mechanics behind building them (both from a design and development perspective).
In my spare time I'm a big Marvel fan, so I was inspired by the visualizations in this link. Specifically looking at the first and second one, I really like the idea behind the first one but found it had some design problems. For example, getting the visualization to work was a struggle and the character search didn't work for me. In the case of the second one, there was a lot of scrolling and words to parse through. I'd like to build a visualization using data that is visually appealing like the first one but displays information easily like the second and find the balance between aesthetics and information. And if I can use the Marvel API, I will be even happier!
