I’m lucky enough that never in my life I felt less than a man and experienced no discrimination in any areas of life. I know it’s not the case for all women. Focusing on the negative aspects is always more shocking, but I’m so in for good data vibes.
Wanna know how to become a Tableau Zen Master in less than a year? Yeah, me too. I remember running on the treadmill on March 1, and I was like “what the hell, I’m going to Twitter”. Ever since then, I’m just rolling my head around and keep asking myself if it’s really happening to me.
Have you heard about the “picture superiority effect”? Concepts presented with visuals or pictures are better learned and more easily recalled than those without. Dare to use images, but use them right, and don’t overuse!
My adventures in fontland continue. This time I used Kodak and Helvetica Neue Thin to make my viz pop. Helvetica Neue Thin is such an elegant font, that even Kodak would dress up as Helvetica Neue Thin for the font Golden Globes.
The people close to me know that I have a soft spot for movies. And fonts. And a bunch of other things, but let’s narrow the scope down to the first two.
There are only a few more inspirational toys (if any) for little girls than Barbie. Look at all the jobs she had in the past 50 years. I hope the Data Visualization Designer Barbie is already on its way!
It’s no secret that I’m a walking love letter to Budapest, but I just can’t stop being obsessed with it. Discover all my favorite spots in the hood and see how you can create round-shaped maps in Tableau & Mapbox.
In 2020 I watched 645 hours of movies and series. Yes, that equals 27 days and it’s almost as long as February. 73% of this time I spent watching series – 660 episodes of 62 different ones. My main platform was Netflix (270 hours), closely followed by HBO GO (250 hours), while I only went to the movies 3 times this year due to the lockdown.
I’m not an easy person. I’m fast, loud, rarely satisfied, I have a can-do attitude, but I get bored easily. I’m a whirlwind, and sometimes people feel intimidated by me. I don’t think that someone is right just because he’s above me in the hierarchy, and it’s hard to shut my mouth when I feel suppressed. I had my problems with that attitude, and I felt that this is all my fault, while it was just not the right workplace for me.
Steven Shoemaker dared me to make a map-centered viz. It was like he’s reading into me. I haven’t created a map so far because every time I tried, I realized how much I suck at it. I put a solid 24 hours into this project, and this did not come easy.
I collected all the questions that in a dream world I’d like to get answers to before start building a dashboard. I divided them into four sections (technical setup, purpose, audience, and development) and included a one-pager of the blog post. Without knowing these, for me, it’s just pure luck if I can calculate the effort right.
I proudly present my slowest ever dashboard made with minimum ozone damage and maximum love – out of 4 rows and 3 columns of data.
An unpopular opinion, but I was raised never to feel ashamed of the things I love. So here it is: I love Woody Allen. For me, he’s one of the most talented, intelligent, and funniest people of our century.
Getting back to school is not always fun, but we can make it so. I made a periodic table and added some interesting facts to all the elements to make learning chemistry even sexier than it is!
This was one of those many design-driven visualizations of mine when I knew how the end-result should look like. I just needed to find the data that fits my story. I grew up in one of these panel houses in Hungary, and wouldn’t trade those years for anything.
