For the first #IronQuest project of 2022, I had the pleasure of teaming up with CJ Mayes to co-host the ‘Re-Viz-It’ round. For this round, we challenged participants to re-visit an older viz from their portfolio and re-create it with the #IronViz scoring criteria in mind, or redesign a viz from the Tableau Accelerators gallery.

We received a total of 19 submissions for this round and welcomed 6 first-time participants to the project! As always, it was fantastic to see the diverse range of topics covered and the creativity shown throughout the entries. For this round, it was great to see many participants revisit some of their older vizzes and take a different approach with their updated versions. For many, this involved putting some newly acquired skills to use, digging deeper into the data and unveiling new insights, or even making use of new Tableau features that weren’t around when the vizzes were first published. For those that redesigned a Tableau Accelerators gallery dashboard for this round, it was an opportunity to practice modern dashboard design and experiment with different layouts and UX elements.

We were lucky enough to have three entries recognised as ‘Viz of the Day‘ this round too! Congratulations to Pradeep, Alisha and Tina on having your work featured by Tableau Public!

Pradeep Kumar G – Web Traffic Dashboard | Digital Marketing

For this viz, Pradeep designed his own take on a dashboard from the Tableau Accelerators gallery. This beautiful business-style dashboard features a modern design with lots of well-considered design and analytical elements including alerts, reference lines, sidebar navigation and careful use of colour. I highly encourage you to download the dashboard from Tableau Public and take a look at how it was built!

Alisha Dhillon – Explore the Changing Forests

For this viz, Alisha redesigned a viz she first published in 2020 on forest loss, tree cover loss and burned areas. With the new version, she took a minimal approach, increasing the use of white space and simplifying her use of colour. She also changed the orientation of her viz to long-form to help guide her audience through the story. The result is an effective, easy-to-consume viz.

Tina Covelli – The Vicious Cycle of OCD (trigger warning)

For this viz, Tina completely reimagined a viz she first published in 2021. The original was an infographic designed to fit a single screen. In the reimagined version, Tina used a visual metaphor of crashing waves to help tell the story of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), its prevalence, and how it can affect those who experience it. This is a powerful viz that takes a detailed look at a sensitive topic. You’ll notice that this long-form viz is split into sections to help guide the reader through the story. Each element of the story is well-explained, often with interactive elements to help engage the audience. I really appreciate how Tina included both a trigger warning at the top, given the sensitive nature of this topic and a call to action at the bottom.


In addition to the vizzes mentioned above, there are a few vizzes I would like to give a special mention. There were many fantastic entries this round but these vizzes each deserve a special mention for their uniqueness and/or approach to design, storytelling and analysis (the Iron Viz scoring criteria).

Aiden Bramel – Sales vs. Target Dashboard Accelerator

A first-time #IronQuest participant, Aiden also reimagined a Tableau Accelerator gallery viz. This business-style dashboard focuses on sales and margins, highlighting performance versus target. The ‘Cockpit’ dashboard design and use of colour make it easy to identify, at a glance, where performance is below target and where action may be required. Meanwhile, the tabs at the top enable the user to navigate to more in-depth views of customer and product performance. Aiden also included a nifty ‘Settings’ button which includes radio buttons that allow the user to switch to alternative comparison points.

Michelle Frayman – Tri Tri Tri

In this quantified-self viz, Michelle reimagined her 2019 viz in which she tracked her 2018 Nantucket sprint triathlon training data. With the new design, Michelle took a more detailed approach, reducing the size of the training days table to create more space for a monthly and weekly summary of her training schedule. I like how Michelle used icons and colours consistently throughout this viz, while her use of annotation and text helps to explain the data, and story, to her audience.


CJ and I provided feedback to everyone who requested it during our conversation, which has since been posted on YouTube.
