How is this working?
I wasn't sure about how well the main infographic read with the location.

Also I'm really bad at titles so I'm not sure if that part works. Since forks and spoons are kind of boring, I was thinking of a title that would make them sound like they're a big deal, but I'm not sure how it works for others.

Also, in the food categories I was thinking of the food pyramid categories but modified to go with the kinds of foods I've been eating, but I'm just not sure about "grains." Everything else is pretty descriptive except that. I was thinking of maybe making it "bread+pasta" but that sounds too specific.

Aside from that... any suggestions?


  1. This is very organized, and you are showing the information in a variety of ways. Be clear about your titles, and what they relate to. Some of your categories take a bit of time to decode, such as how you ate your food.

    Use units of measure where necessary, whether it's time or amount. How does this work when folded?

    Have you tried using color in your pictograms? Your locale pictograms might work better with color to attach it to the graph you've created.

  2. You're telling an interesting story. I don't really understand your scale in the daily usage (what's the y-axis?). With the red and green strokes, you're adding another symbol on top of your pictogram that makes it a little too chunky for me. Could you use opacity to bring out certain pictograms and have others recede instead?

    You should consider writing a short blurb for the beginning.
