I'm really happy with how this turned out! I think it strikes a good balance of playful and informative, which reflects the nature of the dataset. The overall process was fun, and the implementation went pretty smoothly since we did a good job of sketching and designing before we started coding. I added a few things I didn't fully plan for, like hover interactions and fun animations when you click on the timeline, and if I wanted to invest more time I think it would be cool to add more interactions (for example, having the timeline respond to hovering over the bar charts). But overall, I think this is a good place to leave this project.
I hope you enjoyed this series! I wanted to thank Lydia Zimmerman for helping me proofread this and Dorrie for allowing me to use her likeness.
