  • logic & emotion
  • aesthetics & precision

a balance between capturing attention and informing

more lighthearted with more attempts at delight:

  • brighter colors
  • exploding dots
  • song snippets

ultimately similar goal as Bussed Out: capture attention and tell a story

self-expression → very freeing

less emphasis on individual data mappings, no explicit story

 

more about emotions the environment incites and

an implied story with a reveal
