Soda cost breakdown
Why is there more matter than antimatter? How did life begin? What is dark energy? How does gravity work? Why does a can of soda cost so darned much?
Maxim magazine chose to answer the last question first and commissioned me to create “something clever” to present the numbers behind one of the great mysteries of the universe. Copyright issues forced me to create “Pokesi,” a fictional soda brand for which I designed and printed a fictional label, wrapped it around a soda can, photographed it, then “sliced” the can with a little Photoshop magic, turning it into the infographic chart you see before you. All in the name of science.
