What is a DNA diagram?

DNA diagram is a graphical chart resembling the shape of a double helix, a symbol of the human DNA structure that defines the characteristics of a person. This metaphor is used to illustrate an organizational culture of a corporation or smaller company, its underlying values and principles.

Why use DNA diagram to show organizational culture?

The shape of the double helix is well-known, eye-catchy and not a trivial illustration. So you can express a certain level of sophistication by using this kind of graphics within your slides.

You can add explanations or present specific items by icons. At the end of the slide deck, we added a set of icons you can use or you can extend it by getting wider PPT icon set (see Related Diagrams section). Colors of these diagram shapes and icons are editable (all graphics is a vector format). So you can change them to colors of your template or company brand.


Examples of creative visualizations made with DNA diagram

Corporate DNA Double Helix Diagram

To show an organizational culture or so-called corporate DNA, we used a double helix chart which symbolizes biological  DNA. To make it look creative we used a dark background and put five components of the company’s culture: company vision, values, purpose, strategy and culture. We also illustrated each point with a flat icon.

Light outline version on the white background also looks professional, here we used outline icons to show the components of corporate DNA.DNA diagram outline


Company DNA Elements Example

Here’s another variation of corporate DNA. Here we didn’t put the points on the diagram itself but used teardrop shapes with icons inside. We also put a short description of each element. The key to keeping the professional look of the slide is not to stuff too much information inside the slide and remember about the alignment of all shapes.

You can use DNA diagram not only for discussing organizational culture. There are several other cases where you can apply it to surprise your audience with creative slides 🙂


Comparison DNA Graphics Template

DNA diagram will be advantageous if you want to show any comparison. On the image example, we compared two sides, but you can edit the chart as you like and show up to five items.  In the case of two sides comparison, there’s a place for a long description. However, remember people will focus attention on listening to you, so leave only keywords there.

Another example of a comparison diagram is such vertical DNA helix. The slide is divided into two parts in light and dark color, which is a good decision when you want to talk about the pros and cons of a subject or concept.

Creative DNA Timeline

DNA diagram can be used to show goals or milestones of the particular time period.  We designed a 5-years timeline, used different color coding for each year and added several icons (you can change them and assign e.g. to every year).
