Abstract:This thesis summarized different texture attributes (e.g., shape, size, density, etc) and their features, which may help designers to understand what attributes they can use to encode data and which one is more suitable for different cases. A new direction came up with, which the author calls it the iconic texture. A prototype of a design tool that can customize different black and white textures by manipulating texture attributes is developed. Compared to similar tools available for the community, this tool provides people with a graphic user interface to easily customize the textures without writing code. It gives more flexibility in adjusting the attributes of textures, such as more rotation options. With an upload function, it can also change textures’ minimal components to most SVG and png pictures. This thesis presents findings from an exploratory online study where professional designers created black and white textures for pie and bar charts by using the design tool.
