Color Schemes for Workload Visualizations

Julian Rubisch @julianrubisch

Hi 👋

I'm building crowsnestapp.com (https://www.indiehackers.com/product/crows-nest here on Indiehackers), a smart scheduling system tailored for freelancers!

If you want to read more about the general premise, look here: https://www.crowsnestapp.com/product/2020/08/30/hidden-overbookings-freelancers-fast-lane-to-burn-out/

Right now I'm in the process of trying out some visualization options, primarily for the display of workloads (= hours per working day) over time.

The colored area chart is supposed to represent different projects which I attached to actual time tracking data. I'd like to ask your opinion which color scheme you find most apt.

If you'd like to see an animated version of the visu, look here: https://twitter.com/julian_rubisch/status/1309484691922321411?s=20 (Indiehackers wouldn't let me upload a GIF)

Thanks!

Which color scheme do you find most appropriate?
