This page lists design patterns for dashboard design collected to support the design and creative exploration of dashboard design. We run a dedicated workshop in March 2022 to help you applying and discussing design patterns in your work.
What are Dashboards?
Dashboards offer a curated lens through which people view large and complex data sets at a glance. They combine visual representations and other graphical embellishments to provide layers of abstraction and simplification for numerous related data points, so that dashboard viewers get an overview of the most important or relevant information, in a time efficient way. Their ability to provide insight at a glance has led to dashboards being widely used across many application domains, such as business, nursing and hospitals, public health, learning analytics, urban analytics, personal analytics, energy and more.
