Quick Tips: How to Use the Bar Graph Maker

  • Decide on the vision for your bar graph. What is the data you are going to represent? Where will you use the bar graph? Who is the bar graph for?
  • Before you create your bar graph with the bar graph maker, have all your data values ready in an Excel sheet for easy import. You can also input by hand or sync live data with a Google spreadsheet. For that to work, you have to “Publish to the web.”
  • Find the bar graph that best fits your vision. There are flat style bar graphs as well as isometric 3D bar graphs. Also, you can choose from vertical or horizontal graphs.
  • The bar chart maker already has some data examples to help you create your own. If these don’t help, you can start from scratch.
  • Input your data and decide the way in which the data will be shown. With decimals or percentages, in unitary bars or groups of bars and where the legend will be placed.
  • Customize the fonts in your bar graph to fit your brand style guide. If not creating the bar graph for your brand, choose the fonts to fit the design you are working on. The Settings tab in the bar graph maker will let you customize the font size and color as well.
  • Color code the bars to fit your style guide. You can also customize the colors of the axis lines and the background. Test your bar graph to see if the colors and legend positioning fit well with the rest of the design. Edit again until it’s perfect.
  • If you are working on an interactive infographic or presentation, customize the animation setting to add extra emphasis to your data. There are four animation options to choose from.
  • If inserting more than one bar graph into your project, use the same visual style so that the finished design maintains a unified composition. Turn on the built-in grid in the Visme editor to help align all the elements and make your bar graph look totally professional.
