Makeover Monday 2019 Week 7: President Trump’s Official Schedule

Makeover Monday

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.
