I recently had to implement a non-Flash-based speedometer for an executive dashboard for our company’s intranet. Since we are owned by an Italian company, I was specifically asked to replicate a Ferrari speedometer. No problem.
Of course, you start off in the red, progress to orange, then yellow. As you pass 100%, you go to green, then after that things go a little hazy. What’s better than green? I opted for blue, simply because it wasn’t yet used. But where do you go from there?
Plaid, of course.
If our profit margins ever get into the 180% range, I am very screwed. Hopefully, the big-wigs will be too busy counting their money to notice.
