« Taking care of a German pie chart while enjoying German kuchen | Main | Would you be willing to miss a train to admire art? »



I have to say, though, I dislike this tendency to put all text in Tuftean light grey. That's a choice that originally made sense for ink on paper. It works less well on a screen, where I simply can't read the text at all.


I like the smooth transitions and consistently shown in the data, I wonder how well this chart would project on a large screen. I agree with Derek, the gray is tough to follow, particularly at the size shown, but in projection it may get better but probably worse. We are always looking for ways to make our graphs or charts better for our science talks, your thoughts on consistency are a great start to designing these talks. Thanks.
