How do you make a graph look interesting?
The objective of this project was to create a graph detailing the topic of new housing projects started in Pierce County from 2000-2003. This graph couldn't be any ordinary graph, because ordinary graphs are very plain and clear cut. No, this graph had to be something that would grab a reader's attention and also get the pertinent information across to them. I chose having a hammer and increased nail height to represent the increase in housing starts year upon year. And the text for the title was a very hard edged font, which I didn't hesitate to use because it tied in nicely with the shape of the hammer. (Design created: 2003)
