I have a problem and I can't find a solution. Maybe someone can give me advice.

I'm designing a huge presentation, which has many charts and I have problems with one. I want it to be logical and simple to understand for the client. But I can't find best way to do that. I can show a simple example of concrete situation, but this is not an option, because I want to show a basic idea for every possible situation.

Right now I have a table:

Table with 4 columns and 3 rows. Shows values Apple and Cucumber with options Included in Basket, Red and Green

The problem is that value can be included in basket, or not and can be green, red, or both.

If there were only red & green, then I could use a Venn diagram, as some red, some green, some both. But how do I show that some can be also included and not?

The idea is simple for me, because I know what I'm doing, but clients may not understand. And because presentation is huge, idea should be clear. Does anyone have a better idea of how to present the data?

  • You can still use a Venn diagram with three circles, nothing wrong with that. Jun 3, 2014 at 22:05

I think this will work for colors... iconography for other values may or may not work.

  • This won't work for colorblind people. Also, I seriously suspect that this isn't really about colors. Jun 4, 2014 at 5:19

Why not adapt your Venn diagram solution a little bit? The circles represent categories, and the line represents the dichotomy. (You could of course simply use a third circle - but that has a slightly different feel.)
