As presented in the exhibition, this Wheel Diagram, and the others in the series, were displayed on 36"x36" sheets of acrylic, mounted and hung from the wall. To effectively emphasize the three elements of the diagram, each were vinyl printed, displayed on a separate acrylic sheet and stacked to visualize the layered structure of each Wheel Diagram.

MFA Thesis Project
Wheel Diagram - (Series: 3 of 4)

Information Graphics, Exhibition Design, Illustration, Typography

This Wheel Diagram, in addition to the other three in the series, represents novel approaches to visualizing the text-based chocolate chip cookie recipe. 

This Expressive Wheel Diagram, shown below, also visualizes the three main elements of the chocolate chip cookie recipe, the ingredients and measurements, instructions and lastly, an image of the cookie. The ingredients and measurements, as well as the instructions are visualized through the use of expressive type that is arranged around the perimeter of the cookie image. Instructions for baking are placed between the ingredients, at appropriate intervals relevant to the recipe, and are arranged to read in an outward orientation, creating differentiation while establishing a cohesive, circular graphic.
