I saw these couple of charts from the Standard Chartered Bank website.
Things I like about it:
- Fresh colour scheme. Blues and greens work well together.
- Bold titles that explain the intentions of each chart.
- Each chart has an Increase/Decrease call out to emphasize the conclusion from the data trend.
- Overall it’s a format that is pleasing to the eyes and easy to understand. Great job!
I hate pie charts for many reasons. But in this case, this particular pie tastes pretty good for the following reasons:
- It looks pretty. Very nice color scheme . The green & blue hues fits nicely like Lego blocks.
- Sorted and group slices with the biggest slices at the bottom. I can easily make out which slices are bigger.
- I don’t feel confused. This pie chart uses only 6 slices which I can mentally organize in my head.
- Overall clarity is well maintained with the skillful use of color, slice size sorting and small number of slices.
