"If lunch was an elevated experience, I would respect it" -Max
Data Visualisation
individual needs
The Maxtrix of human needs highlights the following problems associated with users lunch habits: they have little to no time to prepare, they regard lunch as a function, they usually find and eat whatever is nearby, they're distracted while they eat their meal and often feel shameful and wish that they took better care of themselves around lunchtime. These results made me realize that there is an opportunity to instill new values in eating a meal…if we create an additional step to ‘lunchtime’ what would happen to the experience of eating?
