Infographics Everywhere! Cake or Pie?

Here’s a clever idea! These are standard cakes on the inside, but the frosting is informative. The appearance indicates the ingredients of the cake in “pie chart” percentages. Idea by Marti Guixe, a designer in Barcelona.

Now, if you’re disappointed that the cake is ordinary inside, you can bake your own with custom segments of batter, using this pan from Danklhampl design. Rather than being a design that communicates, these objects contain information that is immediately self-evident.

The baking pan was designed for people who bake for a crowd with many individual preferences. Personally, I’d just make cupcakes!

My first reaction to these clever European designs is to recall the student’s memory aid: “Pie R square. Cake R round.”

My second reaction: if your information is not self-evident to its users, consider providing graphic design that explains it!

    It sounds like an amazing weekend. I am so envious. I work in a mainly women run business where unfortunately the prevailing sentiment these days is as far from “be nice” as you can get. I am really appreciating more and more the women who can be strong but nice. I know we are out there and just by you posting about them maybe the numbers will continue to grow. Thanks for the post. kath

    MAGIC INSIDE? The only fucking magic inside is the gunsmoke and horseshit show Baer and Co. are pulling with fans wallets down at 24 Real Estate Mogul Plaza. Enough of this shit. Get these fuckers out of Tombstone and bring in a new fucking sheriff. The place is beginning to smell like shit.

    juil09 Ben oui ! Ce sera à refaire autrement. En votant beto aux élections. Faudra que mon candidat ou candidate soit fier d’avoir porté son carré rouge. À ce compte là, je ne voterai pas pour Pauline, c’est sûr!
