Here it is! The assignment was to track a week of our personal media consumption and compare it to a national average. So for the past few days, I’ve noted down what people in two Tweetdeck lists talked about from 6-10PM. Some heavy tweeters definitely made my data imbalanced, but eh, what are you gonna do?
Honestly, the data didn’t mean much to me. It was when I started designing that I got really into the assignment. I had this idea where I used variations of the Twitter bird to represent how many tweets fell into a category. I found one playing basketball! But I was too lazy to continue using the icons for the second page, so it looked disconnected, and my GTF called me out on it.
It’s not perfect since like I said I’m not a designer, but I’m very pleased with it. It was much more fun to put together than my magazine layout and spreads. I just liked playing around with the placement of text and graphics. (You’d be surprised at how much Twitter art exists out there.) Hmmmm, maybe I’ll brave learning design after all…
