Transcript of BDWT13 - Making a good design great

What are silent legends?
Making a good design
The sun
The official definition of a star like The Sun is a "Yellow G2 Dwarf." It is an average, middle-aged star.
If you could take a journey in an normal airliner flying at its normal speed (about 644 km an hour) traveling from Earth to the Sun, it would take 20 years to reach your destination, and that's without stopping.

Clutter and confusion are not attributes of data – they are shortcomings of design.
There is no such thing as information overload. There is only bad design.
The best design gets out of the way between the viewer’s brain and the content.
Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like… People think it's this veneer; that the designers are handed this box and told, 'Make it look good!' That's not what we think design is. It's not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

A story comes together when visuals encourage the user to compare different pieces of data.
We define a story as an ordered sequence of steps, with a clearly defined path through it. Each step can contain text, images, visualizations, video, or any combination thereof.
