COMPARISON OF DRINKS CONSUMPTION OF 5 STUDENTS FROM 5 DIFFERENT NATIONALITIES PER WEEK
Monday 17 November 2014, MA Communication Design students have to create data visualization based on daily activities. Class divided into groups of 5 students. My group has to create data visualization on our food and drink consumption.
After breaking down what data we should put in our project, we decided to choose data of our weekly amount of drink consumptions in UK. It is interesting for us because 5 of us came from 5 different nationalities and have unique drinking attitudes.
Preparing project display
We divided drinks into 4 categories: pure water, hot drink, soft drink, and alcohol, represent by 4 colors of water. We’d like to be relevant on our project aspects, so we use water cups, paper napkins and paper plate. Also, display the project on one of WSA Café table. We draw scales on water cups to show how much drink we have in a week. Luckily the cups have 20 lines around so we can easily using them to show measurements. 1 line represents 4 glasses so 20 lines would be 80 glasses.
4 colors represent 4 type of drinks
Image below describe each member of our group drinking attitude. We can see Marimo only drinks hot drinks, soft drinks and alcohol. Ignatius and Natalie drink all kind of drinks. Ain doesn’t drink alcohol. Gourav we could say drinks like a horse :D. He drinks a lot of water, a lot of hot drinks, and a lot of soft drinks, but doesn’t drink alcohol.
