This design navigates what programming languages and tools 5 major companies have at their disposal. Without an introduction or conclusion, it's difficult to know what impression the user should walk away with. Are there common themes among the companies? Takeaways for their own techstack? What action should the viewer take next? A bit of guidance about the story would be useful for setting context. Visually, the use of illustrations for each company as well as familiar logos/app icons for each program helps the viewer visually navigate. However, the supplemental stats about each company are only communicated through text! Since most of the numbers are large or standalone, data visualization doesn't necessarily work for many of them, but an icon or illustration with the subject matter would be helpful (such as an icon for users). In terms of layout and usability, our site automatically adjusts sizing but the image itself is over 2000 pixels wide full-screen — too wide for most standard screens to view without scrolling horizontally. When in doubt, 1000 pixels wide is a great bet! In all, we'd give this design a B-.
