The Caffeine Poster
Independent Project, Jan 2010
You are what you drink. With so many drinks today claiming to be “energy drinks”, I wanted a little visual clarification, so I made The Caffeine Poster. With coffee drinks on one side and canned cold drinks on the other, you can quickly see how much of a caffeine “hit” (in mg) you will get after consuming. What’s especially interesting is many of the drinks have a very high caffeine mg/oz ratio, but the drink is so small you don’t get that much total caffeine.
I wrote a Making of the Caffeine Poster series of blog posts, that I have compiled HERE.
A big thanks to Fast Company for posting about The Caffeine Poster on the Fast Company blog
. The Caffeine Poster was the most popular story of the week on Fast Company!
I had a number of these printed out by request for teachers and health professionals, and the poster is hanging up in a number of schools and health offices.
