Beauty is in the eye of the beholder – Building amazing Power BI reports

I always am amazed at what can be done on websites and in reports and in general with technology today to make things look visually amazing. You only have to look at the animated movies nowadays to look at the extremes, or the videos of people using photo shop to morph a cat into a dog. Amazing.

 

What also never fails to surprise me is how easy it looks and then when I go and try it looks maybe not so slick. If you want examples of the my awesome design skills one only has to look at the SQLBits.com website.

Visual data representation whether it be a dashboard or a report is one of these areas. Doing it well takes experience.

“Reporting is more than just charts, numbers, and percentages...designing a report is an art form. In this presentation, Miguel Myers will teach you the difference between reports, indicators/gauges, presentations, dashboards, and infographics; including how you can take advantage of each one and how you can design them using Power BI. Miguel will teach you his secrets, such as how using other external tools to understand color, texture, space, balance and saturation can help you to create unique and clean designs.

Using colors, shapes, fonts, and images are just 30% of the labor when you create a report. There are other secrets behind the shiny charts and shapes that make your report complete; secrets that even experts don't want to share at all.

Are you ready to design your reports as never before? Please join us to learn more about data graphic design. Invite your employees, coworkers, bosses, and friends. “
