Great makeover! Sometimes you have to break some rules. :-)

I like the redesign, but unless I have a strange kind of colorblindness it looks like you mixed up the categories. (For example, according to the original graphic, "Use stores more" should be the largest category.)


Kevin: yes I did mix up the labels. They're now fixed. Thanks for the note.


I don't think I've ever seen a grouped-column chart that wasn't arse-awful, and couldn't be improved by just becoming a stacked-bar chart, which is trivially easy. I wonder if it's a hangover from when colour print was something for special occasions, as it's a lot easier to do stacked-bar charts in colour?
