Business Intelligence Style Guide–Analytics Made Beautiful

As part of our Creative Services, we are asked by many of our customers to help them bring a common style and usage to their business intelligence/analytical reports and portals.

The following example is of our color pallets:

It all starts with our Portal layout of grids and navigation.  If you have a proper layout, then your end users can quickly navigate from one area to another without any training.

One of my favorite areas is Chart Styling.  Seems simple, but I’ve seen thousands upon thousands of charts over my career and most of them looked pretty poor.

Even filter functionality needs a good style because you don’t want to train people on how to use filters, it should be natural.image

If your analytics portal looks like a developer built it – and you know what I mean – contact us at Extended Results and our creative team can really make our Portal shine within only a week or two.
