Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm redesigning a rather extensive presentation for our company. We have a particular stacked graph that has over 7 categories (unfortunately, that's as few as possible). They're all very separate things but that are measured within the same group, so I wanted to differentiate the groups as best as I could.
Here's what I have so far:
I don't like how it's essentially a rainbow, so I wanted to maybe try a color scale. The default colors in Excel are drab and flat, and the purpose of this is redesign is to make the presentation "visually appealing"
Should I go with a color gradient of one color for each group (shades of red/green, etc) or should I keep distinct color bands like this?
Also, there is a data table below, its just hidden to for data reasons.
