The declutter data shows the number of sales in both direct and indirect with a goal to meet in each month. The visual element I want to eliminate is the number above the bar since in give a disturbing look to the chart. The point of this chart is to show the best way to sale a product as it shown indirect sales outperform direct sales which means that most the consumer buy the product from third party like resales or through affiliate it tells as that people prefer to buy from someone else than buy it directly from the company who made it. other people may interpret this information that only 3 out 12 months meet the goal meaning that there is a problem in marketing or product that most people don’t prefer to buy the product or the 3 months the meet the goal the third party maybe made a discount for the product that people brought it.
After I saw the chart, I feel like the chart overall look quite nice but it seems a little bit confusing. I felt like the number was not really necessary in this situation, especially that the number was not even round to the nearest one to make it looks nice. The next thing is the axis of the chart was really confusing to me. At first, I thought the number 19 was the date of the month but then after I look at the data I realized that it was represent for the year. And the title of the chart was not really a title at least to me. One thing I like in this chart is the color picked, I think overall it is a really good choice for color. I have made some of the adjustment below to improve the chart:
In my opinion, this is a really easily to understand chart. Instead putting the goal = 90 days on the title and we have to memorize it, I just create a column next to the direct sale and indirect sales so we can easily compare. I also eliminated the year in the original chart because I feel it made the chart look really unprofessional. I also removed the number to make the chart look nice. I felt like if people really want accuracy data, they should look at the original data, because chart is only give people general idea what and how is company doing. I think the chart I made simple and easy for people to understand what is the message the chart want to tell.
