We live in an age of data. It’s now possible to collect all kinds of data – from website analytics to stats on your fitness and health. But now that we’re able to start collecting data like this, we often find that there’s too much of it – that there’s too much noise and not enough signal. And to make it even harder, our attention spans are getting shorter. We don’t want to spend time digging through the data to understand it, we want the answer immediately in front of us.
As data, and the analysing of huge volumes of information, becomes more and more important to us, it also becomes more important that the answers are presented in a meaningful, simple and useful way. Designs that display the data effectively and beautifully are more likely to be used again and again, and designs that are complicated, noisy and hard to use will be ignored.
We’ve brought together a showcase of innovative, stunningly beautiful dashboard concepts & designs to help inspire you. If you’re about to start a project that deals with data visualization, hopefully this collection will give you some inspiration into how you can show your information in a useful, simple and uncluttered way.
