  • A generation of basketball players grew up with a role model named Mike; he inspired them with his skill and competitiveness.\nA generation of visualization students needs to find their own role models...\n\nA few days ago I was sitting across from an executive who was quizzing me on my &amp;#x201C;credentials&amp;#x201D; for designing data visualizations\nI&amp;#x2019;m not sure if he liked my answer: I&amp;#x2019;ve just seen a lot.

  • Stephen Few would probably acknowledge that he is the &amp;#x201C;Angry Curmudgeon&amp;#x201D; Professor of Data Visualization\nNo one offers the sustained rage against poor chart design. Despite that, he is an entertaining read and tireless worker for better display of data\n
  • Then there are the people who are data artists. They create amazing and beautiful visualizations that offer creative new ways to communicate data.\nThey have a lot less interest than Stephen Few in sticking to the book and making every pixel count.\nNevertheless, they are a great source of inspiration. \n\n
  • Finally, in our opinion, nobody beats the New York Times design group for their ability to create easy to understand, practical, yet innovative visualizations.\nThey are the gold standard. Here are a few examples.\n

  • By this I mean: whatever tool you use to present data -- Excel, Tableau, Spotfire, PowerPoint, ...it is worth your while to get good at it.\nYou may be saying: I&amp;#x2019;ve got someone for that. Or I don&amp;#x2019;t want to be an Excel jockey.\nThat may be true, but putting in the time has a couple benefits...\n

Or I don&amp;#x2019;t want to be an Excel jockey.\nThat may be true, but putting in the time has a couple benefits...\n
  • First, it will literally save you time and frustration. Am I assigning homework?\nRather than passing of the responsibility, you have an opportunity to save time, frustration\nData presentation is a long term skill\nPeople say: I want to do great visualizations -- but I don&amp;#x2019;t want to have to work at it\n\n
  • The second benefit comes when you start to push back the boundaries of what are possible.\nTake Excel (again) as an example. A lot of people would assume it is only good for basic charts.\nWe wanted to challenge that notion...\n
  • We took a couple beautiful visualizations done by the NYT, and recreated them in Excel\nNow that you&amp;#x2019;ve been inspired by the experts, and you know that you aren&amp;#x2019;t being held back by your tools.\n
  • This advice is a staple in every presentation about presenting\nKnow who you are communicating to, what their issues are, and how they want to receive information\nRelated concept is the need to have a message -- not just a data dump\n
  • This advice is a staple in every presentation about presenting\nKnow who you are communicating to, what their issues are, and how they want to receive information\nRelated concept is the need to have a message -- not just a data dump\n
  • People look at the world from the perspective of their job role, their relationships, their location, and their experience.\nTo fully connect with them, you need to understand their context and present not just data, but data that translates into meaningful information in a way that fits their needs and ability\nThese are two very different people\nThe marketing analyst might want to know how each campaign performed, but the CMO might just be interested in the overall performance and the best and worst performers.\nOf course, understanding your audience isn&amp;#x2019;t enough...you&amp;#x2019;ve got to have something specific to tell them. A message. \n
  • Who knows what the message is for this dashboard? Of course not. There is no message. There&amp;#x2019;s lots of great information here, shown in some pretty cool ways. But what is it helping me do? Or is it actually leaving me more distracted and confused than before I looked at it? This is the same problem that many information presentations suffer from.\n
  • If you browse to goingtorain.com, it will tell you in a very simple manner &amp;#x201C;yes&amp;#x201D; or &amp;#x201C;no&amp;#x201D; based on your location. They&amp;#x2019;ve remained ruthlessly committed to their message. When look at data in our businesses, isn&amp;#x2019;t this really what we&amp;#x2019;re trying to get to? Should we hire another developer? Are we going to meet our sales objectives? Will the delivery be on time? Start with your message in mind and make sure, if you don&amp;#x2019;t do anything else, that you deliver that message.\n

  • start at :33 sec to end\nhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSoHkadTAxc\n\nRecently, one of our Juice guys wrong a blog post about the difference between being a data gourmet vs. a data gourmand.\n\n\n
  • The Gourmet values data quality -- the right metrics, in the right context, presented effectively\n\nThe Gourmand is more interested in quantity. Comprehensiveness, more is better...in part because they aren&amp;#x2019;t quite sure what they&amp;#x2019;ll do with it.\n\nThis focus on the right data was best summarized by Amanda Cox\n
  • Your challenge: how do you help people focus on JUST THE INFORMATION THAT IS ACTIONABLE.\neverything else is distracting.\n\nActionable has as much to do with the recipient as the information -- is it something they have the power or influence to act on?\n\nWeather information, though, offerings an example. I took a look at the weather.com site a while back:\n

  • Hook: This is the most common question -- the holy grail of data visualization. \n(There are some good frameworks -- notably Andrew Abela&apos;s)\nHowever, I&apos;m afraid I can&apos;t offer you a magic bullet or comprehensive framework...The best I can do today is help you understand WHAT MAKES AN EFFECTIVE CHART\n\nDoing this well -- the most important attributes of your data (based on the question you want to answer)\nmapped to the visual elements that most effectively convey that information...that is the challenge\n

  • Because we struggle so much to define a path to the right chart, we find it a lot easier to pick apart charts that are clearly wrong\nTwo things wrong:\n1. Add up to more than 100%\n2. Pie charts depend on radial distance, rather than length -- and this is exacerbated when in 3-D\n
  • Fail because it uses connectors between the points -- which imply a relationship. Just because they are next to each other, doesn&amp;#x2019;t mean a relationship exists.\n

  • The primary rule of chart design is to look at every element in your chart and make sure it is supporting the story the data is telling.\n\nThese rules were popularized by Edward Tufte (professor emeritus at Yale).\n\nLet me show you an example of what is possible when we remove ornamentation \n
  • In this example, first the extraneous decoration is removed, then we made sure that all the pixels were working hard.\n
  • Here&amp;#x2019;s a table. Where&amp;#x2019;s the tablejunk here? the unnecessary and distracting decorative elements.\n
  • Display the smallest amount of numbers that you can to support the needs of the table. Also notice that we put a header in the top to show the units.\n\nI want to talk a little bit more about data precision\n

  • Hook: The intersection of people good with data and design is a bit rare. But you don&amp;#x2019;t need to be a designer -- there are some simple things you can do to &amp;#x201C;play one on TV&amp;#x201D;\nTrust me: these are the people I try to hire\n
  • Hook: we&amp;#x2019;re not all experts at combining colors...\n* Less is more\n* Choosing the right scheme\n* Go to the experts\n
  • Overheated use of color\n
  • Restrained: few colors, subtle\nMeaningful: drawing your attention, color implies information\n
  • Finally, let&amp;#x2019;s talk just a little about colors. Proper color application can be tricky, but start with knowing about 3 ways to color your data.\n\nThe first is called Sequential coloring. This is used for data that has an order like quartiles or ranges. The resulting colors therefore also have an order\n\nThe second is called Diverging coloring. This model is used when there is a mid point or norm in the data. The two color on the ends show extremes.\n\nThe third is is called Categorical. Use this model when the data is for different items that don&amp;#x2019;t imply sequence, such as departments, or states.\n\nSo what are some great color sets to use?

  • Next, let&amp;#x2019;s talk a little about contrast. Contrast is used to highlight key points in your information.\n\nIn practice, this is more often about about de-emphasizing the stuff that isn&amp;#x2019;t as important. Let&amp;#x2019;s look at an example. [click]\n

  • So, how do you ever select the right one? Many times when you try to build a text based information document, you just end up with a Frankenstein of sizes and fonts. That&amp;#x2019;s why Juice created we&amp;#x2019;ve created something we call the simple font framework. In four easy steps you&amp;#x2019;ll be able to convert your Frankenstein into a Venus Demilo\n
  • We start by specifying the body text. This is what the vast majority of your text will be written in. You want to pick a small-ish size of a simple font like Arial or Georgia.\n
  • We start by specifying the body text. This is what the vast majority of your text will be written in. You want to pick a small-ish size of a simple font like Arial or Georgia.\n
  • Next, use headers to separate and name sections. For headers, base this font on the body. If your body font is 10points in size, your header font would be about 15 to 20 points.\n

  • Often times there notes that you need to add to summarize content or highlight advanced topics. You want notes to be more subtle than the body, so go with the same font style at about 85% size with a lower contrast color.\n

  • Data Storytelling is a bit of an exaggeration\nNevertheless, there are things Vizards can learn from the art of storytelling\n
  • {stop before 0:40}\nThe relevant point that I think he makes is that it isn&amp;#x2019;t good enough to just put your product out there;\nyou need to sell your message; data communication isn&amp;#x2019;t the same things as data delivery\n\n
  • The standard practice for laying out a dashboard, unfortunately, has been to slot charts into a grid.\nWhen I first look at this, does it help me organize my thinking, or tell me anything about the big picture?\nA dashboard represents something real E.g. a process, organization, activity, campaign, etc.\nFlow has to be looked at from the right perspective/organizational view...otherwise, it just gets a tad overwhelming. - James\nWhat is the structure of your dashboard that helps someone wrap their head around it -- and how does someone navigate through that structure?\n1. Provides a logical structure that reflects the thing the dashboard is about\n2. Provides a workflow that helps users go from common questions to find answers\n
  • Many dashboards are created to show a process or something with a sequence of events\ne.g. sales pipelines, marketing campaign, operational process\nWhy not build your dashboard EXPLICITLY around this process. It gives people something easy to grasp immediately.\n
  • In addition to a structure, you also want to make a WORKFLOW that moves users through the process of exploration.\nIn my experiences, a majority of the time you want to enables a very EXPLICIT DRILL-DOWN from the highest level key metrics to detailed data.\nIn this dashboard, the marketing campaign key metrics at the top then lead the user to information about who saw the campaign, and increasingly levels of detail.\nWorkflow is about the stages you want the user to go through. Let&amp;#x2019;s look at some of the common workflows\n
