Most dashboards are useful (for somebody) – but most of them look ugly 😵

That’s quite interesting since on the other end – custom data visualisation are often beautiful designed 🏝.

Is it because the tools are so bad when it comes to design? Or are we just not paying attention to the design details?

I am planning to add some work on the next reports or dashboards I am working to improve the visual appearance and to see where the tools are setting the boundaries.

I would be curious to learn if it is only me how is experience it like that (I know John Johannes Jähnke – for you it is the same) or if there are more out there who would love to have a better dashboard design but just don’t know how to do it.
