Makeover Monday: Steph Curry

There are so many initiatives in the Tableau community at the moment that’s hard to decide which ones to take part. This week I took part on #makeovermonday. This initiative is being spearheaded by Andy Kriebel and Andy Cotgreave and the goal is “how we each quickly take a foreign data set and turn it into a more meaningful visualisation.”

Makeover Monday

We were given a news piece from UK Business Insider and a Tableau data extract which looked at how Steph Curry either avoided shots in the range 7-21 feet or preferred 3 pointers and close shots, depending on how you looked at it.

The original

and my take…


As I develop my skills I’m always looking at the business application and in this case I thought a little imagery wouldn’t go amiss as well as some nice NBA colours. The clean design was intended as a printout that could stand on its own if needed.

Finally I tried not to spend too long on it, mainly because in a business situation we don’t really have that much time to build and keep tweaking the dashboards and are often time pressured.

I hope you find it interesting and please do take part on the next challenge. If you want to see what the rest of the community has been creating click here.
