Composition deals with the overall readability and meaning of the project. As noted by Kirk (2016), the topic of composition is divided into project-level and chart-level options. Use only the figures listed below – from the book companion site. Do not use any figure from the text. Visit the book companion site and only select two figures from the list provided.
For the two figures, include the figure number and the title – from the book companion site.
Provide the responses to the following for each figure separately. List the figure number and title and the responses to each item listed below. Then, list the second figure number and title and the response to each item listed below.
1. How are the choices and deployment of these composition properties suitable to the figure? Why do these choices work for this figure? What are some changes you think would enhance the visual?
2. Provide a different visual design choice for the figure and describe the reasons for the new composition. Provide pros and cons to the new design choices.
