2020 Main Conference Talk
Tabular information typically does not work with mobile platforms, so this data (if it can be) should be presented in a more mobile friendly format.
This presentation will outline the usefulness of “exploding” a typical database of tabular information into “bitesize cards” of information that have the same filter and sort options of a typical table of data.
We will outline the design challenges, the successes, and the failures of a specific report’s re-design into information cards, as well as an overview of the kinds of tabular information where this presentation of data might work best.
Key takeaways from the session:
When and if a designer should suggest a card based display of tabular data that can be sorted and ordered and filtered and flipped through much like a Rolodex. It’s a metaphor, no skew morphism.
