Data Visualization Posters

PROJECT OVERVIEW

THE CHALLENGE

There is waste everywhere, but particularly food waste. Everyone knows that food is wasted more often than it should be, but not everyone knows just how much and where. The task: collect enough data on food waste, organize it in an understandable fashion using a visual medium.

THE SOLUTION

A set of data visualization posters that explore how food waste is generated across the stages of the value chain, where it is generated the most, and how both manufacturers and consumers can aid in the efforts to reduce food waste. The format of each poster within the series is similar, but they differ in their focus of content. Together the posters convey the magnitude of what is wasted while simultaneously educating readers on what they can do to help aid in food waste reduction. Two weeks were spent collecting and organizing the data for these posters, with another two weeks spent writing the narrative and putting the graphs and charts together.
