Project: It's a Matter of Time: Systemic Review of Secure Isolation in Ontario Youth Justice Facilities
Data Visualization Programming and Design

About: This report was made with data from The Provincial Advocate for Children and Youth in collaboration with Art Director, Una Lee and Layout Designer, Lara Stefanovich-Thomson (And Also Too) to illuminate the use of secure isolation (solitary confinement) of youth in detention centers in Ontario, Canada. After learning a new programming language, Processing, I translated the data into rough visualizations. The team then performed data visualization research, sketched mock-ups of representation, and refined each design. After initial refinements were made, I imported the data back in to Processing where I applied each design. These visualizations were then imported into Adobe Illustrator, further refined, and added to the document layout.

Programs used:  Processing, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator
