Modern Design in Business Intelligence: Glassmorphism in Power BI

Implementing Modern Design in Business Intelligence: Glassmorphism for Power BI Report

Glassmorphism is a popular design trend characterized by a translucent, frosted glass effect that combines blurs and semi-transparent colours to create a sleek, modern look. Used for many years in web design, this technique has become increasingly popular in different fields and applications for its visually appealing and immersive user interface. Glassmorphism adds depth and hierarchy to interfaces, making elements appear layered and enhancing the user experience in Power BI reports.

What is Glassmorphism?

Glassmorphism in Power BI leverages the use of transparency and blur to create an effect reminiscent of frosted glass. The main components of this style include:

  1. Opacity: Elements are partially see-through, allowing the background or underlying elements to be visible.

  2. Blur: A backdrop blur effect gives the impression of looking through frosted glass.

Creating Glassmorphism for Analytics Reports

Visual appeal and clarity are crucial in analytics reports. Using glassmorphism in Power BI can enhance the user experience by making data more engaging and interpretable. The tool developed by bIBB provides a straightforward way for developers to implement this modern design in business intelligence using HTML and DAX, ensuring reports are functional and visually appealing.

Step-by-Step Guide to Implement Glassmorphism in Power BI

The tool showcased in the image helps developers generate the necessary code to create the glassmorphism effect. Here's how to use the tool and implement the effect:

1. Select a Background Image: Use the tool to select a link to a background image URL. This image will be used as the backdrop for your glassmorphic elements.

2. Adjust Blur and Opacity: Use the sliders to set the desired level of blur and opacity. This helps customize the effect to suit your design needs.

3. Generate Code: The tool automatically generates the HTML and CSS code needed to implement the glassmorphism effect. Here's an example of the code generated.

Glassmorphism =
"<!DOCTYPE html> 
        body {
            background: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.5);
            backdrop-filter: blur(10px);

4. Integrate with Your Power BI Report: Copy and integrate the generated code with your report by creating a measure with its contents, then use this measure with an HTML visual.


Glassmorphism is more than just a trend; it's a powerful design technique that can significantly enhance your analytics reports' visual appeal and user experience. With the tool provided by BIBB, implementing this effect is straightforward, allowing you to create stunning, modern interfaces with minimal effort. Embrace glassmorphism to make your data not only informative but also visually captivating.
