This simple Business-Week-inspired Excel chart figure, has an unusual border format that leaves plenty of room for a title, a subtitle, and description.(Many of my swipe files use Greeking, which is fake Latin. It helps you ignore the textual content and focus on the actual charts and tables.)

This is a simple figure with an unusual border format. It leaves plenty of room for a title, a subtitle, and description.

It also includes both a unit-of-measure label for the Y axis and a label for the source of the data.

If the source of your own data is obvious, you could use the area for another short comment about the data. Or you could specify the month that the data was taken each year. Or you could leave the source blank.

From a visualization perspective, column plots tend to symbolize discrete periods of performance.

Here, for example, the columns represent years. Quarterly performance also would work.

In contrast, it would be best to use a line plot to show monthly, weekly, or daily performance.
