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 emphasize effectively 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 2 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 Refined 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 are visualized proportionately through the use of a donut chart, the instructions have been refined to visually coordinate closely with the ingredients and the image is placed at the center of the diagram. Comprised into a single, unified, circular graphic, this novel information graphic transforms the traditional text-based recipe.
