This week the data comes to us form Visual.ly and spoke to what people from different social strata thought was the secret to success. Originally, this was presented in a spider chart, but I opted for good old, simple bar charts. Because of the dark background I created a worksheet to act as the legend […]
This week’s data set was a great one on the NCAA Basketball tournament AKA March Madness. I decided to do a Team by Team analysis to see point differential and success per year. I really like the color palette, custom shape and overall flow of this one.
This was a fun one to Google… Simple dataset; simple viz. Some custom shapes was all it takes.

This week we took a look at Andy’s American Express usage for 2016. Pretty normal except for the new car purchase. I really like the action I did with the list of monthly transactions and the monthly spend time line.

Ah, my least favorite holiday… Valentines spending is crazy… people buy for their pets. This week’s data was all about VD spending… Who and What we spend our money on…

This data set was large, so I really focused in on the […]
Another simple dataset this week focused on the “G7” and their share employment by county. Mapping was my first thought but I thought that would be to simple. At work I have been utilizing Dan Montgomery’s published trick using MIN(1) to allow for separate formatting of elements. I still included a mapping element, but it […]
Week 4 of Makeover Monday gave us New Zealand tourism data, by region and month. Very simple data set, so as always you look for the story. It took me a few minutes but they I found the international travel spike for Matamata-Piako, where Lord of the Rings was filmed. I wanted to show all the […]
