The Buzz vs The Bulge: Caffeine & Calories

This information design was done by David McCandless, the man we watched in class. This is designed to show the correlation between how much caffeine is in something vs how many calories it has. It even shows unhealthy food/ drink that has no caffeine, but gives perspcetive to how many calories some caffeinated items are. It also shows what kind of exercise you’d have to do for 30 minutes to burn it all off. The design is simple, yet shows multiple layers of information. This is very useful, especially in a culture obsessed with their weight, calorie intake, and health.
