What do diagrams need to be remembered by your audience?
- People remeber diagrams best when they contain “images of human- recognizable” objects. Photos of people, cartoons or logos and not just bar graphs or abstract visualizations.
- Same thing is observed for unusual chart types like Ungewöhnliche Chart-Typen wie z.B. tree diagrams, network diagrams or matrix diagrams compared to bar graphs or circle graphs.
Audo Oliva’s team didn’t define design guidelines for the reason that there are of course other important things to keep in mind like aesthetics or accurancy of a visualization.
