The Projects

Top Ten Sales

A client in the cosmetics retail industry wanted to display their top ten sales across the United States. Originally, they had a data sheet with a pie chart. We decided to convert their data into a geographic model, which they can visualize in a more creative and analytical manner.

Before
Top Ten Sales - Before
For analytical purposes, this chart is not too bad. It gets the point across. However, when you work with pie charts, it is better to have between 2 and 6 categories. Our Good Practices in Pie Chart Design style guide dives deeper into pie chart design.
After
Top Ten Sales - After
Since we were dealing with geographic information, we decided to create a map outlining the top-ten sales. In addition, we included a five-year sales history along with their percentages and rankings. Furthermore, we added incremental shading for each state in the top ten.
