Hey, Jordan here and i’m an ESD sophomore.
Weather has been pretty great this week; clouds over our heads and chilly wind. Hangzhou is so lovely! Did you know Hangzhou used to be the capital of China, back in the Southern Song Dynasty in the 10th Century?
Design Thinking and Expression:
Went through lessons in Photoshop and Illustrator. After learning some basic skills and techniques, we were given an assignment of creating a poster to introduce ourselves. Also, we had to design a poster for our cardboard chairs.
Visualization of Data:
In the month of May, we will be taught the basics of visualization 可视化. For this week’s lessons, we were introduced to the basic concepts of visualization and different ways/methods of representing data. Did you know our short term memory can only take about 3-5 pieces of information? We were also shown many various projects that the Visual Analytics Group in ZJU has done before. It gave us an idea of what we need to learn and what we are about to learn.
We realized that data itself, although valuable, needs to represented in the correct lighting and fashion in order to give meaning to the user.
Travels and Food:
Go to meal in the Yuquan canteen when you feeling broke
