Excel Art

| 3 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

In my day job, I've been steeped in very complicated programming for clients as of late. I needed a break and so this evening I decided to unwind and make something beautiful. I call it butterfly rainbow.butterfly_rainbow_excel_art.gif

I'm satisfied with how it turned out, although the animated GIF does not do it justice. Please download the workbook for a better experience.

This is a Radar chart with named formulas for the series. The VBA is used solely to animate the colors. This project is simple and instructive. Have a look and let me know what you think!

Here is the file.

If you would like to see more Excel Art, here is a beautiful and very large poster I created to demonstrate Benford's Law. I think it is absolutely stunning!

And here are my two ALL TIME favorite Excel Art creations. They incorporate sound!

Microsoft should keep you on retention, your workbooks are about the only things that make me want to get Excel 2007/2010!
