Fact graphic: 9 foods with sawdust as an ingredient

I read an article about sawdust as an ingredient in 31 foods. Sawdust is cellulose which is a source of fiber. I selected nine foods for the purpose of this graphic. I included animation and sound to bring home the point of the graphic. Do fact graphics have to be quiet, static, and humorless? Nope.

Speaking of humorless, Photoshop as a tool to animate isn’t the best option or the better option. I wanted the blade to rotate. The rotate option in the timeline doesn’t work (using CS6). To add keyframes and layers to create the rotation would increase the file size. Use AfterEffects or Flash to create a more sophisticated animation. Lesson learned.
