How is the image for High Stakes Visualizations a good visualization? In my opinion, from a design perspective it doesn’t represent the event it’s referencing at all. Specifically, I feel that the image conveys the situation as a cute, whimsical event. When it, in fact, was a incredibly heart-breaking tragedy.

I understand not wanting to be too on the nose, so as to not offend anyone’s sensibilities. However, I think there is an importance balance to be had between making something palatable, and conveying historical tragedies with accuracy with reverence for the victims.

I don’t bring this up to be rude at all, so I apologize if it comes off that way. I just think it’s an important question to ask, especially in regards to creating accurate visualizations that are both effective and empathetic.
