28 DAYS OF DATA

INFORMATION DESIGN | PUBLICATION DESIGN


INTRODUCTION

How do we spend our days? Often, we don't realize how valuable our time is until we begin to track our activities. Although we each have 24 hours in a day, many of us choose to use that time differently. The purpose of this project was to collect data about each day for 28 days – and to create a visual narrative from my findings.

DATA COLLECTION + CONCEPTING

Over the course of 28 days, I manually logged the time of day that I woke up, went to bed, ate lunch, and ate dinner. I also noted the number of hours spent with friends vs. alone, doing school work vs. recreational activities, and hours spent asleep. In addition to these basic data points, I also collected interesting findings to supplement the story of my 28 days. I wanted to create a fuller and more robust snapshot of my data.


28 Days of Data is a comprehensive, dimensional look at data collection and using it to create a visual story.

THE BOOK

I chose to present my findings in a book that divided each chapter into the four main areas of life: SLEEP, EAT, WORK, & PLAY.  The book symbolizes the storytelling aspect of the project. 

The summary page covers all of the pertinent data collected for each day, while each chapter details supplementary data that was put together to create the story of my 28 days.
