Data Viz Done Right

Makeover Monday: Where Nike Products Are Made

No comments
Nike, one of the most recognizable brands in the world, is also being very transparent with its data about their facilities. Hopefully many other companies will follow their lead. Here's the viz Eva tasked us with making over:


What works well?

  • The summary card on the right is packed full of information and as you zoom, you get different levels of detail.
  • Keeping the map a single color allows you to focus on where the factories are located.
  • Excellent interactivity
  • Overall, everything is simple and clean.

What could be improved?

  • Adding some filtering capabilities
  • Make it easier to identify the smaller countries, possibly by outlining the countries with a white border.

What I did

  • Mimic the style of the cards with its BANs
  • Make some of the importion that's buried deeper in the map more evident
  • Use Nike official colors
  • Add some simple interactivity through actions

This is a pretty simple viz this week and I really enjoyed making it. It's almost like a report card.
