The stacked bar chart below shows the number of votes and comments by Product Hunt users on a monthly basis. In addition, a data row is used to show the number of products featured.
Growth arrows are used to show the compounded monthly growth rate of comments and votes. Over the last 11 months, the growth rate has stalled to 1% compared to the 24% achieved over the previous 12 months.
This bar chart was built in PowerPoint using the Aploris for Mac add-in. Aploris enables users to quickly create a variety of charts including Mekkos and Gantt charts. In addition, with Aploris you can add visual elements like growth arrows, delta bridges, and data rows/columns.
