What does it mean to work in data visualization?

  • Complex visuals are typically more visually-appealing and attention-grabbing, but are apparently more time-consuming. They push the boundary and can be borderline artworks. Some have more lifetime than others.
  • Simple graphs remain a staple with their advantage of universal understanding. They are easy to make and quick to grasp, which also meant they can be mass produced. They typically serve the purpose of getting the idea through via one-pagers or executive presentations and are used in day-to-day settings, though they don’t always leave a lasting impression for the lack of quirkiness and uniqueness.
