Quick update today – half day in the office finishing off a project then heading home (for a change of scenery) to work on some admit bits and pieces.

Final day of work on this mapping project, which has turned into a bit of a report layout job. This has led me to consider offering layout as an additional service. I’ve always turned work like that down, but I really enjoyed tinkering with this clients text, and whilst there wasn’t time (or permission) to do a full rework, even some colours, smart font choices and smarter ways to show data has made all the difference.

 

That’s it for design for today. Going head home and get on with some admin tasks

 

– blog post on Report Beautifying (defiintely needs a new name)
– finances – I tend to throw all my accounts in Tableau and visualise them because I’m a data nerd!
– rework some PDF’s I give to attendees of my training sessions on Tableau, Piktochart and RAW. They’re a bit out of date and could do with redesigning. I’m then going to offer them as incentives to sign up to my mailing list. Which reminds me …
– I need to write my first email for my mailing list  :-S

 

Over + out
