Data Viz Done Right

Makeover Monday: What pets do people in the U.K. prefer?

No comments
For Makeover Monday week 12, Eva posted this chart from the Pet Food Manufacturers Association about the pets that people in the UK have in their homes.


What works well?

  • The pets are ranked in descending order.
  • The bar colors match the icons.
  • Including the text in the bars saves room

What could be improved?

  • Include a title that explains the data a bit more
  • While the icons are cute, are they necessary?
  • If you remove the icons, you then don't need as many colors.

My Goals

  • Practice what I learned in last week's Workout Wednesday because reinforcing the learning helps it stick for me
  • Create a better title
  • Simplify the colors
  • Create a mobile version

That's it. Simple, quick and done!
