Power BI Theme and Style Guide

An all-in-one package containing tools, guidance, and assets to design great dashboards


A visual Power BI theme (together with its JSON file) is the first step to go from good BI to great BI. It’s also the missing link in most business intelligence projects. When you work on any visual platform having a guide with parameters, styles, assets, rules, and examples is key to a smooth process and a clear style. Add to that the complexity of conveying a story with data or using the interface to show complex systems, then without a guide, it means that there is no consistency.
