Following their recent product research and development in textile design, RMIT engaged Plural to develop an infographic system to visually represent the relevant data. Dynamic colour coded graphs were developed to showcase the variation between various fabric types.
Delivering complex information simply
RMIT Garment Graphing
The research conducted by the university focused on testing various denim and down fabrics using a full purpose, military-built mannequin. Each fabric and garment type was tested for temperature and humidity readings at various points on the body under specific physical conditions. This resulted in a magnitude of complex data points that needed to be presented clearly and effectively within the university's report to commercial clients.
Plural took the challenge to develop a heat map solution that displayed both overview and in-depth data. The design system also involved developing a digital wireframe of the mannequin used in the study to illustration and compare data.
