Hi, superhero! - information visualization for children with diabetes type 1 (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis was to examine how an information visualisation about what happens in the human body of type 1 diabetics for children can look like.

Initially, theory about information visualisation, principles of information design, image rethorics and different theories around what makes a good information image was studied. Following, four pre studies were conducted to support the reason for the main study to be conducted, develop criteria for how an information visualisation should and must be, examine in what context children are used to see pictures and to get confirmation on what metaphors and explanations are used to explain diabetes type 1.

The results from the pre studies were brought into a design process as foundation for the further work. The design process began with brainstorming, sketching and a valuation of the produced concepts. The two concepts which performed best during the valuation were designed and brought into another valuation fase with the target group of this thesis where one of the design solutions performed better.

The conclusion of this thesis is that an information visualisation about what happens in the human body of type 1 diabetics for children can be a joyful children's book, where the pages are designed with help of design principles for information design. The images on the pages should be large enough for the children to understand what is illustrated. 15cm x 15cm has proven to be a reasonable size for the pages.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur en informationsvisualisering om vad som händer i kroppen vid diabetes typ 1 för barn kan se ut.

Inledningsvis studerades teori gällande informationsvisualisering, principer inom informationsdesign, bildretorik och olika teorier kring vad som är en bra informationsbild. Sedan följde fyra stycken förstudier för att underbygga anledningen till varför denna studie skulle genomföras, ta fram kriterier för hur en informationsvisualisering måste vara, undersöka i vilka sammanhang barn brukar se bilder och få bekräftelse på vilka liknelser ochförklaringsmodeller som används för att förklara diabetes typ 1.

Resultaten av förstudierna togs med in i en designprocess som underlag för det vidare arbetet. Designprocessen inleddes med brainstorming, skissering och värdering av de framtagna koncepten. De två koncept som presterade bäst under värderingen formgavs och togs vidare in i en värderingsfas med studiens målgrupp, där en designlösning presterade bättre.

Slutsatsen av denna studie är att en informationsvisualisering om vad som händer i kroppen vid diabetes typ 1 för barn kan vara en lustfylld barnbok där sidorna är utformade med hjälp av designprinciper för informationsdesign. Bilderna på sidorna bör vara så pass stora att barnen kan förstå vad det är på bilderna. 15cm x 15cm har visat sig vara en bra storlek på sidor.
