Packaging design is something that I believe it is truly inspiring. It's so fun to see how designers use their creativity to come up with eye-catching packaging in the midst of so much visual noise. Take, for example, grocery store aisles. It is so easy to get overwhelmed with all the colors and fonts screaming at you. Oftentimes, we're on autopilot at the store and have our go-to products, not paying much attention to the array of creative packaging right under our noses.
How empowering would it be to cause social impact with your design? Have you ever thought about mixing design, technology and food to transform the way we eat? I honestly haven't thought about this before. At least not in this impactful fashion. I didn't realize that food & design could be so interesting and important together. What comes to mind when you hear "food & design"? To me, I envision fancy, curated dishes perfectly shot on Instagram.
A company called The Baking Supply Co. decided to re-invent the use of herbs for our treats. To get us excited about nutritious foods again, they are doing through what they called kits. Inside a variety of kits, you'll find recipes for gluten and refined sugar free herbal treats, iron-on patch, oven mitts, guides and more. All together in a very attractive branding, what do you say? It's worth for a try, at the least.
I don’t believe we have shared the work from Thomas Price before, he is a designer based in Kansas City, USA. From his work, it’s great to see Thomas experimenting and playing with different mediums throughout his work. For this project for example, as a role of designer/letterer; he was mixing text content for the National Turkey Federation with food split in two on a plate with the other half with type. I think the results are quite simple but a fantastic concept! What do you think?

One of the greatest things to do when you visit a different place is to try the local dishes. By eating ethnical food you'll go a little further in the experience of that city or country, which is the whole idea of traveling. Gabriele Galimberti is an experienced Italian photographer who travels all over the world to capture the soul of different cultures in the little things.
British Designer Ryan MacEachern decided to take his diet to the next level by using some design to spice things up. This project explores the nutritional values of the diet and presents it in a contrasting way, it juxtaposes the dull and boring appearance of the food he was eating by presenting the data using colourful vibrant foods. Enjoy! For more from Ryan MacEachern visit behance.net/ryanmac.
Garret Steider had the bright idea to create this awesome project that involves typography and food. Carving into food and shaping each letter of the Alphabet with an extra taste of typography making this a very unique and probably very time consuming but the result is amazing. Check it out!
Experimentation is a vital part of design. A person gets an idea and starts planning to make that idea come true. Designers make a living out of it, and it's important to keep our work fresh. Here's a little something to inspire you.
