This week’s Makeover Monday gives us a peek into how President Trump schedules his time, based on 3 months of leaked private schedules.
What works well?
- Didn’t use a pie chart!
- Minimalist design; High data-ink ratio
- Clear titles and labels
What could be improved?
- Honestly, not much.
- Percentage labels would help more accurately compare the breakdown between categories.
What Marc did:
- Recreated the original chart in Data Studio. There’s not much in need of a makeover.
- Added percentage labels to the bars.
What Ryan did:
- Created a Gantt chart to show Trump’s full schedule.
- Coloured the periods of executive time in orange.
- Added reference lines to frame the working hours.
- Annotated some key events that took place from Nov-Feb.
