The Ugly Truth about Meetings

Source: Visually
Author: Diana Gosi

Best Practices:
  • The design does an excellent job of walking you through the story.
  • There a nice breaks between each of the sections.
  • I like how Diana used numbers and highlighted them in red rather than using charts everywhere. Sometimes a simple number is enough.
  • The graphics capture each of the sections in the story well.
  • The story has a clear beginning, middle and end. The end is a great example of providing readers with actions.
  • Nice use of color.
Recommended Enhancements:
  • Kill the pie charts in the last section. Diana hasn't used charts until the two pie charts. They almost look like space filler. She could have made the numbers more prominent to fill in that space.
