Part of series: BA010 Bullet Alternatives 010 – Panels
Series Keywords: Key search words: accordion chart, fan chart, panel chart, ribbon chart
This series doesn't completely eliminate bullets, but it does compartmentalize information in a more interesting way. These panels present a progression of thought or a series of related ideas. The series example shows a progression of time: school, career, current aspirations.
You can use these frameworks over several pages, e.g., an upward flow from back to front on one page and then a downward flow from back to front on the next page.
They work particularly well with animation (download the animated example). Convert a bulleted list into a group of panels, and you can then use the panels as a tracker: simply group the panels, reduce their size, and position them consistently in a corner of the content area. Then color each panel appropriately as you move through your presentation.
