Design the Table Instead of the Content
Data tables help digest large amounts of information. They are visually quite busy and we need to help the viewer to easily scan the content.
In other words, we need to bring attention to the data, not the table.
Take this action
Design the table as minimal as possible and focus on the content. Column labels are less important than the data itself. Structure the content inside and remove all unnecessary elements.
