Brexit vs James Bond

My #MakeoverMonday for the chart here, using survey results split by Leave/Remain support in the EU 2016 referendum here.

(Because it was my first time and I didn’t read the rules, I did a makeover of the original chart first.)

What I noticed when I swapped the data and changed the colours in the original chart (teal and orange) to Vote Leave and Remain campaign colours:

Colours have a massive impact on the look and feel of charts.

I was quite pleased with the teal and orange version – it reflected my aesthetic and looked “clean”. But when I changed the colours to red and blue, it just didn’t seem right to me. it looked quite overdone in fact, nothing I’d really give much thought to myself.


Based on feedback from Eva and Charlie, I’ve updated it to focus only on agreement.
