Project 1 - Girl Scout Cookies Infographic

By on

I've chosen to analyze this infographic about Girl Scout Cookies because I like it how it illustrates both the business and nutrition of the cookies within many of the same charts. It makes use of pie charts, bar charts, timelines, and other data visualizations to provide history and background of the Girl Scout Cookies. I also find it interesting how the graphic uses numerical information in two instances - with the "total number of calories in girl scout cookies sold each year" and the total girl scout cookie revenue from last year - and presents the numbers in large, colored font to stand out and presumably, surprise the viewer. There are also several neat facts about the organization towards the bottom of the graphic. The "connotations of form", "color", "connection", and "interpretation" are some of the qualitative issues used extensively throughout the design.
