Many charts in Excel are visually boring.
Here is a chart that inspired me. It is showcasing Benford's Law
which says that many data sources that occur naturally, such as the size of the world's countries exhibit an unexpected pattern in that the first digit is the numeral 1 about 30% of the time.
Considering that there are nine numerals, you would expect each numeral to occur about 11% of the time as the first digit in these numbers. But many natural data sources follow Benfords Law almost exactly.
Personally, I loved the look and feel of this chart (it's really a poster) with the ordered chaos of color and bezier curves.
Please let me know what you think of it!
Here's the workbook:
And here's a 24 x 48 inch poster of the chart:
