像化 「卡路里」 From Calories to Pixels

相信大家對「卡路里」一詞不會陌生,然而,要計算食物裡頭的卡路里確實是令人頭痛。傳統食物標籤沒有橫一的標示準則,令消費者難以準確計算其卡路里攝取量。有見及此,英國平面設計師 Severino R 利用像素 (pixel),將「卡路里」圖像化,每一像素就是一卡路里,既有趣,又簡單易明。

We ain’t new to the term “Calories”, yet counting calories could be a headache to many people. Instead of read from the tradition food label, which is always confusing, graphic designer Severino R found a way to visualise calories in a playful info graphic.

“Severino translated amounts of energy into a more relatable form of reference: pixels.  Along with showing the daily male and female intakes, 42 common foods items are transformed into a pattern of squares — each pixel symbolizing one calorie (1 kal). The total number of squares/pixels in each food or drink represents the item’s total calories, making for a more digestible form of understanding that whole calorie counting business.”
