Dashboard Design

I attended a workshop recently on dashboard design by none other than data visualization expert, Stephen Few. I highly recommend his workshops for beginners or experienced professionals.

At the end of the workshop Steve brought up several examples of dashboards from a competition he hosted in 2012. The purpose was to find new dashboard examples for the second edition of his book, Information Dashboard Design, where he can point out good or bad technique. I didn't make the book but I still have my submission so here's a short critique of my own work based on what I learned.
