Design x Food
Information design, though fulfilling when done effectively and successfully, can be a tedious task for the designer. Ryan MacEachern, a young UK designer and recent grad, seems to have a particular knack for this type of design, as evidenced by his outstanding project “Design x Food”. MacEachern explains, “A day before I was given a brief to present information on a personal habit over a period of a week I started a very bland and uninteresting low carbohydrate diet because I have previously been eating copious amounts of high fat, high sugar colourful junk food and needed to cut down to a strict diet plan. 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 I was eating by presenting the data using colourful vibrant foods, which were almost entirely excluded from my diet.” The simplicity of MacEachern’s layouts allow the subject matter to really shine and engage the viewer. Well done. He produced a perfect bound book and poster for the assignment. View the entire book here.
