This is an excellent thought process to go through when working with unfamiliar data or an open-ended question.

The chart in step 5 is particularly exceptional, but then the visuals fall apart once he adds area charts. Area chart (and stacked bars) do a poor job at preserving true proportions for all sections except the bottom color and the total.

Overall though, this is a great way to think through visualization design if you don't know where to start.
