How to make matrix visualisation look good

Hello, 

 

I am struggling with making my reports look visually appealing. Whatever I tinker with in the paint roller, it keeps on coming out looking amateuristic. What i'm struggling with right now is making the matrix visualisation look good. Does anyone have a tips, tricks or settings for making this look good? Hex codes, fonts, background colors, other settings to make the matrix look good are much appreciated. 

 

Thanks in advace.

Re: How to make matrix visualisation look good

You need to apply design rules to your report for absolutely everything you do. Starting from where do you place your chart, how many pixels away from each chart, what does each page contain and where, does every visual have a title? etc. etc. In therms of color there are countless tools out there, I personally use encycolorpedia.com

 

Can you share a screenshot of the page your matrix visual is on?

Thank you both for your responses. Sadly I cannot share a screenshot as it's full of sensitive data and my company's logo is clearly visible. Do you have any pointers as to where I can find more info about these design rules? Thanks in advance.
