With an open and collaborative relationship with technical development, I was able to maintain a creative approach to communicating complex information.
Effective data visualization balances creative exploration with technical accuracy. Sometimes the need for accuracy makes the creative aspect hard to maintain, since the two process often rely on very different tools and skillsets. When dealing with complex information, I push to keep communication open and to sketch ideas quickly and often. This way, I'm able to check assumptions for accuracy and benefit from the skillsets of others while maintaining the space to explore unexpected solutions.
