I was consulting for an organisation on data-driven solutions. As a part of my role, I was providing them with guidance through data+design principles and recommending visual story-telling techniques. I created assets for them to assist in the future for data+design projects. One of the assets was a guide to help them understand charts better. The guide would make them understand the context in which one must create a chart, their anatomy, purpose and general guidelines to keep in mind while charting data. Below are some of the glimpses from that guide.
