The designer’s purpose in designing a data visualization is to create a deliverable that will be well received and easily understood by the reader.
All design choices and particular implementations must serve this purpose.
An effective dashboard shows actionable and useful information at a glance.
It simplifies the visual representation of complex data and helps stakeholders understand, analyze, and present key insights.
The core objective of a dashboard is to make complex information accessible and easy to digest. Therefore, the interface presenting the data should be clean and straightforward in order to minimize users’ cognitive load and time spent searching.
One of the biggest challenges of dashboard design is serving multiple personas. Once each user role is defined, it becomes critical to understand where their needs overlap and where they diverge.
