“How can you visually summarize the final set
of the Table Tennis tournament at NID?”
During my first semester, we had a Table Tennis tournament organized in campus. What followed was an exciting day filled with fast paced matches, and the finalists were Upamanyu & Amal. This was a great chance to do my first data visualization project: record the scores, see how the match unfolds, and visualize it!
Having explored different styles of representing the data, I decided to stick with a line chart for the score of the two players, and a cumulative icon in the bottom to represent the lead. Based on the players' game style, I picked the Red-Blue pallete (Upamanyu, who has an aggresive style, in red, whereas Amal, a more calm player, in blue). I used Processing to visualize the scores over time, and finally created a poster in Illustrator.
