Composition deals with the overall readability and meaning of the project. As noted by Kirk (2016), the topic of composition is divided into project-level and chart-level options.
1. How are the choices and
deployment of these composition properties suitable to the figure? Why
do these choices work for this figure? What are some changes you think
would enhance the visual?
2. Provide a different visual design choice for the figure
and describe the reasons for the new composition. Provide pros and cons
to the new design choices.
