Nutrifacts for homes

Designer and architect Michelle Kaufmann has written a white paper (pdf) on "nutrition labels" for homes (see photo above from her blog).

By using the typography and style of food nutrition labels, she immediately communicates the essentials of her intention: that in buying a home, as in buying food, you should consider whether your choice is healthy and good for you. That message would have a lot less impact in a different design! Clever.
