Thanks for the write-up Chad
I like your submission, and I feel that it really covers a lot of the areas in the brief that were asked for. If a stakeholder asked about something in the data there’s a comprehensive amount of information for them to go and look at and filter down to if they need it.
I definitely feel there’s a couple of enhancements that could be made though. And none of them are really that difficult, just extensions of what you’ve already done.
One simple change I would suggest is maybe add some contrasting colours to the main colour that you’ve decided to use. These can be used to showcase different sections or grids in your report, or maybe break out the title and filtering sections etc.
Definitely check out the colour theme generator for some easy to use pallets that have simple variations on a main colour.
Also one of the other visualisation I don’t love is the way that you’ve stacked a huge amount of information into some donut charts. To me this is just a little bit overbearing and I would try and stay away from visualisations like this. You’re better off using either a column or bar chart for visuals that need to represent lots of different results.
Also try to avoid situations where blanks appear in your reports as well. Consumers will think something is wrong as soon as they see this. There’s simple formula techniques you can use to change these to something else
I recommend having a good look through some of the other challenge submissions that cover a lot of my ideas that I’ve mentioned above. There is sometimes real beauty in simplicity. Have all of the extensive calculations and logic going on behind-the-scenes, and only represent to the consumer the most relevant information based on their requirements.
Nice work though, couple of tweaks and I think this would be really really compelling.
