The proposed brief was to record the amount of coffee, chai and tea that was drunk over a given period of time. The idea was to document my consumption and record the specific details of this consumption through time of day, date, type of drink and the amount of headaches I had throughout this period.
The style of the infographic was inspired by nonsensical graphs, as they tend to take on a more artistic overall form. This style of graph is suited to the information that my work holds as I tend to consume these types of beverages when in creative moods, either painting or designing. The overall infographic thus evokes a sense of the mindset I was in when consuming these beverages.
The graph displays four angular shapes that comprise of a number of triangles. Each triangle within each shape represents one cup or headache. Therefore the larger shapes show a larger number of cups consumed. The graph works with a cross axis, with the left side showing the start date of data being collected and the right side the end. The top and bottom axis show the time of the day that the data was recorded (am or pm). From this it’s possible to see what I decided to consume at what time of day and roughly what date throughout this period of time.
The key remains quite simplistic, showing the graphic shapes separated from the main image, each one with the item it represents underneath. The viewer, after reading the key, would then search for the specific shape within the graph to relate it to the time and date of that particular piece of data.
