  • Thanks for the post. Curious about the savings app concept. Doesn’t showing the two columns next to each other imply the same scale? If so, this design distorts the data making it look like you’ve saved more today than overall this month. Perhaps a better solution would be to depict the day and month containers differently.

    There is a lot of extraneous design going on in these charts. Stephen Few has some great books and articles on the subjects. Designers have to keep in mind the task that these graphs are helping users achieve. Anything outside of that is visual noise and will slow down interpretation of the data.

    For example the Infographic Agro Chart Illustration, what is more important on this chart? The actual data numbers or the illustrations of the farm. Sure it looks coo, but is the goal to look cool or to quickly communicate information.
