Color Meanings Across Cultures
This is a project I did for a visualization class at UC Berkeley. The project tells the story of how colors have different meanings depending on what culture you see it used in. Blue can mean wealth in one culture and defeat in another.
I used D3 to build dendrograms and a line chart. I saved the dendrogram SVGs so I could refine them using Adobe Illustrator which I then used to build out the final visualiation. The interactive visualization can be seen here.
The data comes from the Information is Beautiful site(https://informationisbeautiful.net). They take pride in presenting 'juicy data' and have their own visualizations based on them.
The specific data used for this visualization can be found as a Google Sheet located here
