Padding On Rounded Cards

visual effect

The left cards use the same padding around the card. Yet the visual result seems off.

A quick fix is to make the padding larger when the element on the edge is not round - like icons and text.

The rule of thumb is to use double the padding on the edge which is not round.

Choose Chart Types Carefully

Line charts might look trendier but they don't apply to every case. When the x-axis has limited options, a bar chart is the most appropriate graph type. Plus, the line chart might introduce false intermediate values. For the specific example, let's say that you only had data for the total monthly orders (not individual days) The line chart makes the data look daily, which is incorrect!
