Information Design Rule No.2: Use Reduced Charts

Our goal is that everyone can read all information from our charts quickly and easily. Unfortunately, this is often prevented by cluttered visualizations. Choose a chart and think about what you do not necessarily need without any loss of information. Are coloured backgrounds and different colours, 3D effects, legends, frames and guide lines really necessary? Visualize leanly and reduce the complexity of graphics step by step.

This rule and others are explained in detail in the reportingimpulse Academy. Get your Visual Data Analytics Beginner’s Package here!

Information Design Rule No.1: Don’t use 3D charts

3D charts are regularly used in companies, but they offer no added value. On the contrary – they distort the data and appear unreliable. According to a joint study with the Fraunhofer Institute, information from a 3D chart is perceived up to seven(!) times worse. So the next time you want to embellish dry data with 3D effects, remember that you don’t decorate your mails to the boss with Word Art either. 😉
