cereal ingredient network

Data visualization, Data-driven design

Data is everywhere, yet it hasn’t fully found its way to industrial and interaction design processes; I am hoping to challenge this. Scraping data from foodfacts.com, I am analyzing nutrition facts from more than 6,000 American breakfast products, forming a basis for design development that both goes beyond and compliments traditional user research/design research methodologies.

Below is an initial data visualization experiment, a smaller scale network of cereal ingredients, showing promise of the potential to reveal patterns in ingredient use frequency and composition.
