Data Viz 0r Eye Candy?

It is interesting how much time a lot of designers spend on creating an engaging visualization.

At the end of the day, isn’t data just data? 

As long as we are presenting it in a meaningful way, should we really spend so much time prettying up our dashboards?

This is where I find that data consumers (which is pretty much everyone) who see an dashboard that has been designed for its purpose, spend a lot more time consuming the information

E.g,

The first dashboard was created within 5-10 minutes with the Tableau Superstore dataset. It provides some very useful info

 

But, the second ones begs a lot of questions and you are intrigued to spend a lot more time with it.

 

So, with this particular series, I will put up images of some dashboards that have caught my eye that or the ones I have created. So, hopefully, you can get some inspiration

 

enjoy the eye-candy

How GreenButton helped me save 35% on my utilities bill

I love data, I do.
And if you give me some data, I am going to try to utilize it somehow.

Recently, I was driven to act upon our energy consumption habits when I started to see our family utilities bill climb up every single month. I will be honest, I didn’t care until our bill was less than 100$ month, but climbing up every month couldn’t be right. PGE couldn’t be raising my rates every day, could they?

So I did some fact finding and figures that it was all my fault (and my family’s)

So, now did I reduce my bill? Here are a simple few steps that might help you too (hopefully they do)
