As part of a first year brief I was asked to visually communicate a dataset on the European Union. I settled on looking at the most commonly occurring colors within the flags of the countries that make up the EU, researching facts and figures until I was able to pull together one strong dataset. After much experimentation and further research into existing flag designs and layouts, I developed my own design incorporating the 7 most common colours into one simple but effective flag design. Before getting it professionally printed, I created a digital mockup of how the flag would look once finished in order to highlight any potential design flaws. I also made tags and a box for the flag to be presented in, detailing on them my chosen dataset to the audience so they would easily be able to understand what my flag represented. The final outcome is one of quality; the overall design that sits on the flag is simple with blocks of bold colours however for a good flag design to work it should be so simple that a child can draw it from memory, which I feel they are able to do with my distinctive flag.
