I am a graphic designer as well as a detailed technical writer. The combination can be lethal to my peace of mind at times.
When Mountain Dew previewed their new soda, Johnson City Gold, last month, I had to buy a pack. And then I just had to check out the packaging.
Can anyone tell me why the math on the calories does not add up? Should it?
It looks like a simple editing mistake that would have cost a chunk of points and heaped embarrassment upon any student’s head during their college days. However, there is a contest to redesign the second batch. That should fix things.
Mistake or not in the packaging department… I admit, I like the malt taste, not to mention the name and the vintage design. I will be sad to see that change.
Rounding. Manufacturers can round up or down as they like – but there are rules – can’t remember any of them now – but some of the items on the list can be rounded up by up or down to 5 percentage points/grams and others can be round up or down up to 10 percentage points/grams.
That is interesting. I understand rounding up a little… 10 pts seems like a lot.
