Animated artwork by Rebecca Mock

Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.

Along with his own money, he came back from San Francisco with what his father, Frederik Harboe, lovingly describes as a touch of attitude. Louis, his dad said, developed a taste for high-end coffees, and remarked on the lack of sophistication of his father’s “dinner platings” — the arrangement of food on the plate.

On the left is the FDA’s proposed update to the nutrition facts that are displayed on most packaged goods in the United States. Overall, it’s a very welcome update in terms of readability, but it worsens the overemphasis on calories being the ultimate measure of nutrition.

I’ve proposed some slight modifications on the right in an effort to eliminate some redundancy while disclosing more helpful information about the food item:

  1. The FDA version mentions the serving size twice. It’s a bit unnecessary, so I combined them into a single line. It’s the same information, just condensed.
  2. I added a horizontal stacked bar chart that outlines where the calories come from. Calories from fat are much different than calories from protein. The chart makes it easy to see, at a glance, how the macronutrients are broken down.

Overall, the FDA modifications are well done, but I wish they added more  information that reflects our current knowledge of nutrition, rather than continuing to focus on the antiquated metric of raw calories.
