They need some tender loving care.
#npdata
@annkemery
After enough editing…
#npdata
@annkemery
…a final product emerges.
#npdata

And it’s as easy as 1-2-3.

Step ①
Doodle some
drafts with
markers.
#npdata
@annkemery
Step ②
Create a few of those charts in Excel.
#npdata
@annkemery
Step ③
Paste the best
designs into
your reports.
But where should I start??
#npdata
@annkemery
Doodles can be small and simple…
#npdata
@annkemery
…or large and complex.
#npdata
@annkemery
You can draw dot plots…
#npdata
@annkemery
…or line charts.
#npdata
@annkemery
You can doodle on the computer…
#npdata
@annkemery
…or with paper and pen.
#npdata
@annkemery
You can collect sketches on your desk…
#npdata
@annkemery
…or tape them on a wall.
#npdata
@annkemery
Doodles can be nice and neat…
#npdata
@annkemery
…or downright ugly.
#npdata
@annkemery
There are at least a dozen ways
to visualize every dataset.
