I like a graphic about why people enjoy gingerbread. The story of why we enjoy gingerbread is an amusing topic that is cleverly told as one scrolls down the page.
“Well it goes well with tea.”
“Gingerbread is sweet”
“Gingerbread people exist in our favorite stories and cartoons”
What I don’t like about the gingerbread graphic is that it doesn’t really have a resolution. I’m not sure how one ends a story about gingerbread appeal, but ending with advice that cookies make you fat is a little irritating.
I think the graphic should have kept its simple charm by telling us more about why we like ginger bread, rather than delving into why we shouldn’t enjoy cookies too much.
Next is a graphic that puts images of food into each state of the United States. I like the image of putting food into states, as a way of saying something about the culture and business of each state. The food placed in the states seems random though.
For instance, why does Minnesota contain a Breakfast Burrito? Why is Tennessee full of tomatoes? These are questions the graphic fails to answer.
Without offering an explanation of why certain foods are connected to certain states, this graphic causes more confusion than clarity. For this reason, the state-food graphic is my bad graphic.
If you’re looking at my post’s title and wondering what my ugly graphic is…I don’t have one. I just wanted to use that title.
