The Timeline project visualized the chocolate chip cookie recipe as an American cultural icon. Organized chronologically and composed of three sections, the Timeline includes a series of magazine ads (at the top), a date line that anchors the diagram horizontally (through the center), and informational tiles (below the dateline) that contain the bulk of the content. As an information graphic model, a timeline diagram is structured precisely for organizing historical data along a chronological line. Cultural, social, and historical content and context can be displayed chronologically, providing clarity and accessibility through the evident progression of time through standard visual increments.

Over 100 informational tiles drew in the reader through variations on size, color and display depth from the wall. The information graphic visualizes the invention, evolution and adoption of the chocolate chip cookie, and the recipe, into the American culture.
