To enhance clarity, information design often simplifies complex real-world phenomena into basic visual representations.
While these graphics are clear, they may not always have the impact needed. Data often contains intriguing narratives and stories that, when uncovered, can be used to create a more engaging and versatile information experience for the audience.
By adding an experiential layer to the dry data, designers can aim to captivate a wider audience and offer a broader range of interpretations.
