This project explores the intersection between infographics and interactive web technologies by examining how to incorporate visual data components into web-based environment that in turn impact user interaction around a data-driven graphic. The final digital artifact is a web-based interactive inforgraphic book “Shrink Your Plastic Footprint” aiming to raise the public awareness of recycling. This book is also optimized for major tablets for more general target audience.
Specifically, the knowledge base is interaction design, storytelling with data visualization, responsive web design and infographics. Related to the content of this project, I prepare myself profound knowledge and deep understanding of current major plastic consumption and recycling issues, including energy conservation, plastic bottle consumption, and daily recycling behavior.
