Bring Data & Reports To Life With Interactive Data Visualizations & Chart Design

Interactive Data Visualizations

The Datalabs Agency brings data to life with beautiful interactivity. In our experience, the key to successful interactive data visualizations is the user experience (UX). Our interaction designers work with data journalists and data visualization developers to extract the meaningful and memorable insights from your data, constructing an experience that blows away standard ‘flat’ reporting, like PDFs or Word documents.

So treat your audience with respect. Value their time and intelligence. And turn your data and reports into digital charts and interactive visuals and see the benefits, visually.

There’s both artistry and science behind interactive data visualizations and charts. Allowing your audience to ‘play’ with data brings them closer to the action — lets them educate themselves in the structure and values within a dataset. By giving your audience the visual interface to change what the data looks like, you’ve empowering them to choose their own journey through your data and hopefully entertaining them, as well.

Thoughts About Interactive Data Design

Six Tips for Creating Better Experiences

Fun Formats for Interactive Data

There are so many creative formats for visualized data — think: calculators, interactive infographics, dashboards, microsite reports, animated data stories.

Many Paths to Individual Stories

Interactive data tells non-linear stories. Use a design team that knows that there are multiple paths to insights and a variety of stories that can be told with your data.

One Key Metric

Keep it simple and don’t confuse your audience. Sometimes the most engaging experiences are the simplest, the ones where the audience is focused on one key metric in your data.

Open Source Code or BI Software

Should your interactive idea use open-source code like D3 or are you better suited to go with business intelligence software like Tableau or Power BI? We know the ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ of either direction.

Responsive Design

Trust that the interactive data visualizations we design will work across desktops, tablets, and mobile phones. We test as we develop. And we design for modern browsers that your audiences use.

Analytics About Interactions

Why not collect the data about how your users interact with your data tools? We can code up your interactive data visualization with Google Analytics or Adobe Analytics.
