As a Graphic Communication major, I’ve managed to turn my love for food into some pretty sweet projects. From editorial print design to the design of this website, my projects cover the scope of all types of output with one unifying factor – FOOD! Check out some of the projects I’ve worked on.
Saluto Magazine Design
For this magazine design project I created an 8-page feature using all of my own recipes, food styling, photography and design. I included a cover, masthead, table of contents, two editorial department pages, feature spread, and back page ad. The goal was to design a magazine geared towards a specific audience while maintaining consistent branding throughout the feature.
“Creative Sweets” Recipe Book
For this recipe book, I developed a recipe for use in the “Creative Sweets” journal. The food styling, photography and recipe is original. My goal in creating a visual narrative was to help recipe readers mise en place by showing them a photographic visual.
Recipes for the Modern Woman
This print design project is a sample of the 180 page book I created out of a collection of my favorite Ina Garten recipes. I imported the text of over 200 recipes from online, and styled it in InDesign. This book was printed, hand bound, and sewn at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. The illustrations were created from a photo of wallpaper (artist Dupenny) that I took in a LuluLemon store in Park City, Utah. “If you can’t hand draw your own illustrations, sourced out is fine” – If Ina was a graphic designer.
Cook The Rainbow
In my first ever cookbook, I put color at the forefront of the concept. Each chapter has recipes coordinated by color, starting with red and ending with purple. All of the recipes in this cookbook are gluten-free, with a prominent focus on fresh produce. Check out the book on Blurb!
