Data Viz Done Right

Canadian Consumer Price Index

On Saturday, I was catching up on some Workout Wednesday challenges. Week 51 2018 was a challenge from Rody Zakovich to learn about using containers to control the padding on dashboard objects. I love the way this looks so I wanted an excuse to put it into practice.

I received the weekly data.world newsletter on Friday and it contained a data set about the Canadian Consumer Price Index. Given I had just completed the padding challenge, this made for a relatively quick exercise.

In addition to working on the padding, I also incorporated Parameter Actions that allow the user to choose an item to explore.

Here's the lesson: the only way to get good at something is to practice, relentlessly. Find reasons to practice; don't wait for them.

Let me know what you think about this design...thanks! Click on the image for the interactive version (it's too big to fit in a window on this blog).
