  • Problem: The Chapman University cafeteria needed nutrition signage that provides accessible, useful nutritional information to students. The main objective was to increase awareness of nutritional values in the cafeteria and to provide a way of more easily recognizing and comparing the nutrient content of food items. Nutrients selected for the signage were based on those researched to be most relevant to overall health and those that students are most interested in.

    Solution: Recipes and nutrition facts were collected from the cafeteria and further analyzed using the software, Food Processor. These foods were organized by the category and the station at which they are served. The graphic signs were designed on the basis of Front-of-Package labeling (FOP), providing an easy-to-use nutrition guideline system. The results were a color-coded system displaying key nutrients. Each color denotes a measurement—green indicates a healthy choice, orange represents consuming in moderation, and red signifies consuming sparingly—providing nutritional guidelines at a glance.
