Nutritional Humility™ Intellectual Visual Identity
Update 1st November 2019: Nutritional Humility™ now has become the official replacement title for the manuscript "Humility Through Frugality".
From the conceptor and author of Humility Through Frugality™ introduces - Nutritional Humility. A visualised, intellectual identity to encompass the theory, essence and wisdom of "Nutritive Individualisation". An educational ethos and awareness for recognising two equal parts (Contexts and Interpretations) for assessing a "food", influence, ideology or resource their subjectivities for human concern and sustenance.
Philosophy meets Pragmatism. Welcome to Nutritional Humility™.
The State of our "normal" living; the Pedestrian Normalcy.
Nutritional Humility™ is a self-awareness principle at highlighting the subjectivities behind every finalised objectivity of "correctness".
We have been instilled, for far too long to remain binarily paternalised. Instilled with binary labels as simply either "Black". Or "White". To aid us in our decision making for the betterment of all our civility, sociology and biology.
Yet as a result of all this linear subservience, crisis of confusion persisted. Side effects shapeshifts and remanifests from one to another of increasing intensity. Interventions ranging from sociological, political or medical interventions - to promise us our wellbeing and livelihood - does not seem to evolve for the better. For-the-worse, seems a more accurate sentiment.
This project / this initiative challenges the above sociological doctrine. By asserting subjectivities behind all objectivities. Through authenticity and qualitatively filtering as resilience against paternalist, prevailing hierarchy of "correctness". We need to build, within us; ourselves - a progressive wisdom that respects each and every human being as a subjective variable of biological sensitivity and of individuality. As opposed to an economically condensed - number or figure of so-called instruments of "capital". Or worse - averaged means of sampled "scientific" data.
A full featured book Humility Through Frugality™ explores the above concerns exactly just that. Nutritional Humility™ however; is the principal, visualised-philosophical identity that attempts to mechanise the "how" - should we Question against the prevailing hierarchy.
"Science" as unrealistic pursuit of correctness utopia
Our current outlook on "Science" is hardly cooperative. It remains violently competitive through means of accruing leverages weighed by epidemiological studies and financial (leveraged) preservation of existing motivations. That of which once again, prevailing correctness. "Science" sadly hence in today's lexicon - is nothing but a totalitarian platforming of "correctness" conquest.
According to "Nature" - there are no political or ethical "-isms" in nutrient composition. For that "Nature" regards no such thing as a right and likewise no such thing as a wrong. Alas, our sensationalist media and their instant-gratifications agendas continue instilling binary interpretations. "Safe" or "healthy". "Good" or "Bad". Biology, physiology, sociology and on the other hand, are far more nuanced and complex in how each interprets such judgments.
"Science" is never final. Yet our subservient interpretation of it; remains sadly misguided and at times, political. Which is unrepresentative to the Nature's chaotic and incalculable extents of human physiology.
Application as political counters / case example
We can apply the above understanding; as a communicative / lingual strategy for responding against any institutionalised subservience.
"Aspirin is bad for you." , "Saturated Fats is bad for you.", "Ketogenic interventions are definitely for everybody longterm." are few of such case argument examples. From as simple as "Sugar is bad for you." to as very specifically objective, isolated conclusion such as "Nitric Oxide is bad for you.", or "L-Carnitine supplementation causes cancer." So on and so forth.
We do this by first highlighting and scrutinising the (reactionists, the skeptic) arguments by first examining their claim/s - the "What" and then followed by "Who" behind each compositional argument we then wish to counter present. First we ask this question Under WHAT CONTEXT is <such and such> persists as "true" or "correct" to such objective conclusion? And then followed by next asking - Under WHOSE individual metabolic, genetic, environmental, or sociologically up brought - INTERPRETATIONS that these adverse effects; are so up brought to attention almost as if it is a caricature or reputation?
The above diagram illustrates one example in a widely believed case that Aspirin is highly damaging to the gut ecosystems and highly adverse to hormonal health / namely of eroding one's internal Insulin sensitivity in response to exogenous nutrients. Obviously this is to showcase just one of numerous examples of nutritive debates. Readers / viewers whom have witnessed this project are encouraged to seek any other closed objectivisms as further exercises.
From having learned the above example; we shall inevitably accept; that "Science" should remain prone to revisions. And thus importantly - Nutritional Humility™ as an educational principle - advocates self Nutritive Individualisation; comprising both of Contextual awareness + Interpretive variabilities.

Overall Encapsulation - The Apple
Overall Encapsulation - The Apple
All food or "resources"; for as long as it exists holistically in its complete state of Nature - both sustains and inflames - the consumer / the supposed "benefactor". Food is both nourishment (Anabolic) and punishment (Inflammatory).
This Philosophy Visual Identity derives its influences much from The Apple. The Apple represents both saviour and temptation. In a theological sense, it is a nutritive object inspired to that of sin; that should one eats or consume - shall be forever inescapable from contempt by the heavens. For it bears a mark of enticement of the Devil. The undoubted sweetness characteristic rationalises this alluring trait. It is however; also a commonly shared, visual encapsulation connotative to essential vitality and rejuvenation. The flesh right down to the meat of such a fruit; bears many objective and nutritive qualities as such they are open for opportunist - metabolic utilisation and interpretation to the Consumer and Benefactor.

“Education primarily consists of what we have unlearned.” - Mark Twain
From one thing solved, another variability begins anew. A book, a thesis or a research paper; they all share a commonality. That is - a hypothetical construct of observational thought/s and judgment/s; concretely transferred onto a blank medium or a canvas by means of linguistics. However, a hypothesis remains at best as simply just that - a hypothetical understanding through observational experiences.
Nutritional Humility™ was created and conceptualised no differently to that as a "hypothesis" but rather - simply a hypothesis that reminds itself; both to the Author as well as that of the audience this Book (This Is™) speaks to - over realising there are no facts. Only interpretations. Such is as close approximation to how Nature suggests and operates; for Nature represents no biases or conceptions to what constitutes "Correctness".
Sadly, our current institutions egoistically tinkers and grossly undermines this through defining "Simplicity" as Ego. Yet "ego" is timelessly subjectively; hence a visualised representation for the "flicking" of the book. From to start to finish. And Vice Versa.
"Nature" perfectly responds to such simplicity as Side Effects & Repercussions in some ways to self-compensate. Should an individual commits to veganism for life, that remains his or her ideological interpretation until their bodies' own intuitive mechanisms; expressed as deficiencies from having persisted such way of eating through time. Likewise with any other nutritional paradigm/s or ‘dogmas’. Ketogenic paradigm may indeed be nutritively viable and applicable during times of scarcity or famines; until it is subject to deter on the basis of individual’s fluctuating contexts of living, sustaining and/or fitness/energy expenditure events/ training meritocracies - over time these may not suffice to every needs and (once again) - numerous Context/s.
What seemed correct only remains correct as however politically framed, only in that context, through that interpretation, and enclosed in that time, only.
That, in the best definition however challenging it is - "Science" at its best; an open book of variable interpretations.
Giveaway Reflectional Quotations
Giveaway Reflectional Quotations
Nutritional Humility™ advocates both Philosophy and Pragmatism; for conveying the many great sociological and nutritive concerns + turbulences of our time. Each and every card carries a reflectional, philosophical thought followed by a brief biography on each author's background.
Nutritional Humility™ bears no organisational structure to that of a corporation, or business entity. Hence no names of directors etc exist to prove as the "public" face of the organisation position of authority. But rather it is to be recognised as a viral communicative device to emphasise nutritive and philosophical awareness at sharing lateral wisdom amidst our enveloping turbulences. To name a few from Structural Violence, Depression, Social Depravations, all the way to public-health Diseases and Metabolic Syndromes.
The variable back printing (for the Quotes + brief biography) here as visual renders remains to be conceptually hypothesised; if however it were to be printed in real life in courtesy of Moo® Pty Ltd (London UK).
'Rajdhani' as display headers and 'Asap' as body copy both completes and reassures all communicative collateral to provide two qualitative messaging - humanist yet stern in all its intent.
The typographic palette of Nutritional Humility™ carries over from the parent branding of This Is™. This is to ensure consistency in all communicative devices. Less on quaint impression, more on stern yet slightly casual whilst remaining elegant and orderly.
Colour selection is to remain slightly under saturated to imply less of exaggerated characterisation. Nutritional Humility™ favours principles rather than iconographic exaggeration, or deliberate compensation through use of colour in its messaging of imploring nutritional and honouring physiological diversities. Hence the primary makeup remains more or less same to that of the Parent branding of This Is™. Less is better, but slightly underhued / unsaturated to ensure no biasful interpretive effects may be imposed upon whoever witness it in public space.
This project and branding initiative; whilst remaining conceptual work of fiction; nevertheless carries certain degrees of truth upon addressing many great concerns of our turbulent, pedestrian living. That is, our persisting subservience and benevolence to live under the highly simplified & prevalent Institutionalisation/s. From Dietary Advices all the way to Societal Recorrection/s.
This project and concept branding initiative (This Is™) remains entirely just that - conceptual in origin and nature by its author, inventor and designer (Andrew Wiguna / AW™ / andrewwiguna.com). All this is to both initiate and perpetuate all scrutinising against our present subscriptions towards Correctness Hierarchy, currently disguised to us at face value known as "Science".
This project nevertheless carries some sensitive disclaimer; such that whilst the author, inventor and designer has had no extensive prior knowledge intimately within the fields of Functional Medicine, Metabolic Physiology, Biochemistry or further extended fields of Nutrition - all readers and audience are to take every diligent responsible care for assessing and researching at their own further ends to determine what or which dietary or nutritive plan/s or sociological decisions deemed as best appropriate only to their individual circumstances, nutritional genomics or interpretively unique - physiology. Everybody, including this author - may yet face every inevitable chances for self-nutritional revision/s as time unfolds.
I remain grateful if anyone shall witness my manuscript in their full entirety.
