A Step-by-Step Design Guide for Data Visualizations

A simple guide to how to make your visualizations look a little more pleasant, since we don't all have mentors or bosses or kind-hearted friends with a sense of directness.

Every time you build a viz and aren't quite satisfied with it, just step through these questions and you'll get some ideas on how to spruce things up.

Using this guide

You can browse and edit in this repo, but you should really visit the site at http://designingviz.com.

In case you haven't noticed, it's a work in progress.

Focus

The focus for the time being is practical applied design, not so much how to pick the right chart or theory etc etc etc. Think The Wall Street Journal Guide to Information Graphics, not The Visual Display of Quantitative Information.

Contributing

I'd love contributions! You should definitely read CONTRIBUTING.md if you're interested.
