so I am designing a dashboard and on this dashboard there are going to be 3 graphs, 2 of them are bar graphs and one of them is a line graph. The bar graphs have similar x axis, but different y axis. For example, both bar graphs would have the names of people, but the y axis would be favorite color and favorite movie respectively. This means that both bar graphs would have the same colors representing each individual, as the I do not want to confuse the user with two different legends. On the other hand, the line graph is completely independent and has nothing to do with the other two graphs. I see two options for organizing them in my dashboard:
I am thinking of going with option 2 because I don't want the users to confuse the two bar graphs, as visually they would look identical. All the colors would be the same, the only difference being the y axis text. On the other hand, placing similar graphs next to each other makes more sense if the identical visual wasn't an issue. Do you guys see any issues with placing them in a bar-line-bar horizontally across a dashboard?
