New From Pop Chart Lab: Pie Charts Of Pies


The pie chart got its name honestly: It’s shaped like a pie and carved into pieces like slices. But where its namesake generally contains gooey sweetness, pie graphs are filled with chalky, boring data. Not anymore: The infographic team at Pop Chart Lab has whipped up the mother of all pie charts: pie charts of pies.

These graphs function as one would expect: Showing the proportions of ingredients (by weight) in everything from blueberry and banana cream to sweet potato and shoofly (warning: this one’s heavy on the lard). There are 13 in all--a baker’s dozen. “The hardest part,” Pop Chart tells Co.Design, “might have been limiting ourselves to just 13 delicious pies.”

“Pie Charts” is available here as a limited-edition 18"x24" print for $22.
