AboutA talk about designing to make food and wine beautiful and sell.
Speakers: Julian Metcalfe, Afroditi Krassa and Fernando Gutiérrez
Chair: Hester Gray
As part of Great Western Studio's talk series Talking Ideas: Drink Food Design will look at how to design for food and particularly wine and how the commissioning process works. This includes restaurant design, designing cookbooks , designing branding for food outlets and designing wine labels. The talk will look at designing for the consumable. How does a wine label attract the buyer, signal a particular region, sum up a taste? How does a restaurant brand itself so that the food makes sense with the décor? How does good design make food and wine taste even better?
