Visualising Research at ECU
Look out for Visualising Research displays during Research Week. Postgraduate Design students in the School of Communications and Arts collaborate with researchers at ECU to develop visual interpretations for research. The project's main goals provide insight into complex research by means of different visualisation methods.
Visualising Research allows designers to seek new and effective ways of displaying information that makes infographics, comics, maps, series of photographs or 3D models of data more comprehensible and attractive.
“The visualising research initiative is rapidly evolving beyond its initial scope of helping researchers from across ECU to uncover new, visual ways of presenting their research findings. Now researchers and design students are partnering to develop ways to frame research questions, and even looking beyond visuals towards better understanding the research audience. From the design point of view, the opportunity for the students to work with real clients, who aren’t the typical start-up company assumed to be the standard design client, has been invaluable.”
