FF Chartwell Font
This font lets you take simple strings of numbers and transform them into charts. The visualized data remains editable, allowing for hassle-free updates and styling. I have been looking for something like this to create better looking charts and graphs than what excel, powerpoint, or survey monkey can do with their built in chart generators which are ugly.
The demo screencast uses Photoshop, so I had look up how to find the Open Type menu for WORD. You have to go to the advanced menus on fonts which is a little arrow underneath the basic font commands. I was hoping I could use in PPT, but PPT does not have Open Type integrated. You can use it in Publisher. It requires exporting as a jpg.
Slightly more tedious but it slowed me down enough to think about how I wanted to present the findings - what was the insight to ask.
