Workshop on Aesthetic Data Visualization: Tools & Challenges for 
Interaction Designers at NordiCHI 2012

thanks to the advances of visualization authoring tools. With the tools 
including programming languages, visualization generation websites, and 
open source libraries, interaction designers can easily create data 
visualization harnessing their prototyping skills and aesthetic 
sensibility. However, there still exist some technical and 
methodological challenges for interaction designers in jumping into the 

At the workshop, we will discuss new roles of designers in this 
interdisciplinary field, and the ways of using and enhancing
