Visual Story of The Dallas Mavericks- Steven Witkowski

image

I thought this image was cool because it goes so in depth and says a lot with a bunch of small texts and figures but when you take a step back and look at the image as a whole it draws you back in because it looks so interesting. The circular chart, all the different shades of blue, and every other element of the visual seem to work together well as a whole. I think it accomplished telling a very in depth story, nearly every detail you could ask of that year’s Dallas Mavericks team and it doesn’t leave you feeling lost in any of it’s many stats and figures. The design is carried out very well so that as I looked at it my eyes tend to focus on all the right places at all the right times. I went from looking at the image as a whole and seeing the overall story that was going to be told about the Mavericks and from there became focused on different figures of the graph individually by the texts on the page, or in the wins/losses chart’s case I was drawn in by the shape of the figure. There are many elements at work here and I felt like it was a good example to share because it shows the analytics of sports in a different more visually appealing way than your classic stat sheet.

    I think these type of charts used for basketball or any sport, are awesome because it shows the stats from the whole season. I feel like they need to use these charts more because it would help out those fans who didn’t really watch from last season get caught up.-Adam Namba
