When contemplating a website redesign, keep in mind that one of the best ways to grab a person’s attention is having delicious graphics. We mean so delicious, they contemplate eating the page (or screen, if it’s on a website). And so, without further ado, here’s your weekend snack:
Website Redesign Strategy: Graphs, Plots, and Charts!
Ahhhh, reminds us of the good old days of slide show presentations. Graphical representations of your data makes it more entertaining! Tables are and always will be boring.
For the more adventurous among us, try a fresh helping of animated graphs! Click here to animate the line graph below.
But this is only a demo, and a demo can only go so far. You need to have a good feel for how this type of display will look with your own data, on your own website. You can take a look at Google Charts, which is what we have used in this article, and try to tie it into your own website redesign project. The good thing about using Google Charts, (besides being backed by Google), is that they maintain backwards compatibility for older browsers. You won’t be leaving some of the people visiting your site out in the cold, without pie (and everyone loves pie)! So go ahead and start adding some graphs, plots and charts to your website; people will be more likely to stay on your site longer, and share those pretty graphics with their friends on social media.
And now, we’re off to write some more code (which is how we enjoy our weekends). At least, right after we wash all these sticky pie jokes off our fingers! (Sorry, couldn’t resist!)
Oh, and if you’d like some assistance baking that special pie chart for your website, we’d be more than happy to lend a hand!
