In this phase you well begin to frame the goals of your team's design by learning about these important aspects.
  • stakeholders in your proposed solution
  • technology available to you and steps to creating data visualizations
  • available data and the larger context of problems to consider
After conducting research, you will develop initial design ideas and compose a clear value proposition that defines what your team will create, for whom, and the value it will bring. Finally, you will present a proposal to your class and the community for feedback, helping you refine your design direction moving into the next project phase.
