Chart Construction

Charts are some of the most accessible visual tools we can use when illustrating data, but their impact depends on the type we select and how well we build it into our presentation. If our charts contain bad design habits, we risk confusing our audience and losing their attention. To avoid this, we must understand how to make an impact with the build of our charts.
