Data chart labels: inside or outside?
SlideMagic

This post on the F1 Instagram account has an interesting solution to the labels of a data chart: When the column is tall enough, the label is put inside with a contrasting white font color If not, the label is put on top, if possible with a font color that matches the column The advantage is that this enables you to make the column graph taller as a whole (no need to budget extra space for the labels), and it is easer to put a background image as most labels (in tall columns) have enough contrast against them. The vertical orientation of the labels though ..read more

I have not been posting for a while here. As you know, I am based in Tel Aviv, and the attacks of October 7 made it impossible for me to continue and write a frequent “happy blog post” as if nothing happened. This blog is about presentation not politics, so I won’t start a discussion here that repeats what has already been said everywhere. When reading and listening to all these opinions, keep this in mind: everything changed on October 7. Whatever you thought on October 6, needs to be reevaluated and reconsidered. Old narratives don’t work anymore. Whatever side your on. I am continuing to wo ..read more
