Entering to the phase of data visualization, I found my potential as a designer and it further inspired me to challenge more difficult things. At the beginning, I had no faith of finishing the visualization part successfully because it was too hard for me. For my three years in UCSB, I never attended any course that relates to arts, design and drawing. Since the visualization of my data can be treated as a process of design and drawing, regardless of that I have no such talent in design and drawing, I thought that I also did not equipped with creative thoughts on design. I was worried about what symbols and colors I should applied to so that they can be harmonized in such a small card; I was also concerned about my drawing skills.
