I think that the final result achieves my original goal of making sweets seem healthier than fruit. I learned how easy it is to lie while still using actual data points. However, my inner critic is a bit concerned about how simple the graphic is. On one hand, the simplicity helps to convey my message, as it is easy to quickly see which foods (and even which category of food) contain more sugar. On the other hand, we looked at a lot of beautiful, complicated visualizations in class and mine is a boring bar graph. Perhaps a different form of presentation would create a more attractive piece, but I don't think the clarity of my message could get any clearer. In other words, my final project emphasizes intent over beauty, and I'm not sure that's best.

Perhaps also adding a key explaining the difference between the blue and purple bars would make the graphic easier to quickly understand.
