We present a case study incorporating the process of ideation of an experienced graphic designer into the workflow of a team of programmers to improve scientific visualization methods. Our work highlights the current opportunities and reports on the process we have adopted for beneficial collaboration between designers, computer scientists, and other collaborators. The specific design problem we address is creating illustrative visualization rendering algorithms for describing complex motion data, such as those analyzed in studies of human biomechanics.
