User-friendly features and functionality of modern BI, analytics and visualization tools allow more people to independently discover and communicate insights within organizations. However, this freedom requires understanding of proper design principles in order to create meaningful, accurate visualizations in ways our brains are naturally wired to perceive.

The new Visual Design Checklist teaches emerging strategies in visual design in order to facilitate effective communication of trends and insights within data.

This checklist is a guide to creating effective data visualizations and designing for visual dialogue. Key concepts explored include:

  • Emphasis, balance and unity between design elements
  • Understanding the picture superiority effect — and why it matters
  • Operating within the triangle of forces visualization constraints
