The process book for my data visualization project is due tomorrow. I initially finished it on Friday.

On Saturday, I printed a draft and showed it to someone. Too much white space, he said.

Six weeks into design school, I simply cannot ignore a comment like “too much white space.” So I spent time on Saturday and Sunday resizing images, adjusting type, and changing the layout.

After each iteration I thought: I can make this better. However, this may be a lesson in knowing when to say it’s good enough, and not perfect, because at some point it just has to be done.


And that’s where I am right now. Yet to be printed.
