Let’s dive into the nitty gritty of dashboard design. Join an analyst trained in the arts as we break down universal design elements into a step-by-step checklist built specifically for Tableau. In real time, we’ll leverage 16 aesthetic decisions to transform a series of lackluster dashboards into striking compositions. As we build in Tableau, we’ll pinpoint when to use each technique and how it enhances the user's experience. These before and after transformations will illustrate how powerfully aesthetics can improve the functionality of our dashboards. By the end of this session, you’ll be able to use the full power of the formatting pane, elevate default designs into stunning visualizations, create effective artistic dashboard layouts, and design a positive initial and long-term experience for your audience.
