Excel Optical Illusions Week #31

| 1 Comment | 0 TrackBacks

This week's Excel Optical Illusion is called Square Circle Spiral. I first saw this on the Discover Magazine website.


My Excel version is a simple XY Scatter plot of four circles. That's right, circles. The illusion of spirals is particularly strong, at least for me. To the right of the chart I left the various markers so you can see how it is done.

Here is the file.

Excel Hero Academy coming soon! I plan to release a lot more details later this week.

If you like my blog, please be sure to sign-up for the new Excel Hero Newsletter. Subscribers receive all of my articles AND extra Excel Hero tips.

Why do I share these optical illusions? The techniques that are used to make them, when mastered, can be used in many other Excel projects, in charting, formula crafting, and formatting. Learn them. They will aid you on your journey to become an Excel Hero.

Another great job, Daniel

If anybody is keen to learn Daniel's techniques, this is a simple model and probably the easiest of all the models so far to deconstruct and work out what drives the model.

No VBA, just Named Ranges.
