Information is Beautiful

Towards the end of our first year, we came across Information Graphics (infographics); visual representations of information, data or knowledge. This was pretty much an open brief where we could pick any topic, piece of research, etc. and create our own infographic poster.

I chose to look at how many miles your supermarket-bought roast dinner accumulates before reaching your plate. Using images of each separate component to the Sunday roast, I molded them into the shapes of their origin to easily pinpoint geographical location. A key at the bottom right of the page shows the food miles of each ingredient and an overall sum.

We used David McCandless' book, Information is Beautiful as reference for this project.
