Changed my idea from food to "incoming texts"


  1. It's hard to judge right now how you're going to populate the rest of your pages and the large infographic. Do you have any sub-categories? You could maybe include time of day the text was received, whether or not you responded, certain numbers that are repeated in the senders phone numbers or states where their area codes are from... many possibilities. One gray area, though, is that your categories overlap a bit. For example, I'm not sure whether your friends category is mutually exclusive from your MICA category. 16 girls + 8 guys = 24 total texts, but 13 MICA + 9 friends + 3 unknown = 25 total texts, and how do you know whether the unknowns were guys or girls?

  2. What happened to your other direction?

    This concept of texts comes out of nowhere, and is really unresolved. There is nothing about it that functions as an infographic in any way right now, as it's just numerical, and there are no sub-categories.

    What would happen on the full page graphic? What other categories are you working with?

    The pictograms themselves are visually balanced, but don't really relate to the idea of texting in a visual way. How can you relate them to the experience of sending and receiving texts?
