I’ve begun work on the back of the cards, which displays the data I’ve gathered from my surveys and research.
Some design decisions of note:
-The Semacode Tag leads the viewer to the person’s Facebook Profile. At first, I wanted it to link to the individual’s thesis website, but since most barcode readers are on smartphones and an individual’s site may not be visually formatted on such a small screen, I decided to use Facebook instead. The social networking site detects if the user is looking at the page through a mobile device, and thus formats it accordingly.
-The colors for the bars are supposed to represent the color schemes used in the site (light blue for Twitter, dark blue for Facebook, etc).
-The “Score” in the lower right hand corner is the summation of the percentages. I felt I can create a game using that number in the future.
