Food Safety Icons



You know that scene in the movie "Alien" with John Hurt? Well, this kind of food safety is nothing like that. Nothing at all. Come to think of it, I'm not sure why I even brought that movie up. I'll have the stenographer strike it from the record.

These icons will accompany the factory illustrations. The four icons are temperature, water activity, acidity, and moisture content.

There's a page of concepts and then the finals. Cheers.

Here's set number two of the Aqualab illustrations.

There's nothing dry about the Aqualab Duo, bwa ha ha ha ha!

Sorry.

The Aqualab duo is an instrument made by Decagon Devices that measures both water activity and moisture content. It has a number of different applications (remember the factory from a couple of posts ago?), but my understanding is that it's primarily used to determine food safety.

Water activity and moisture content aren't the easiest concepts to understand and, subsequently, the capabilities of the Aqualab can also be a bit tricky to grasp. To that end, Decagon is producing a video that breaks down the fundamentals into manageable morsels. These are the illustrations to accompany the narrative.
