How did you learn how to cook?
|A letter from an imaginary Turkish hotel, a telegram sent overseas, stamps, stickers and tickets from far off places. Each piece tells a different story about the experiences and locations which helped to build the recipes. I curated folders and folders of images of historical design from across the world for this project, finding ways to pay homage to different styles whilst creating a consistent voice with controlled colour palettes and type choices.|
|looking through time||one|
|Whilst some of the elements have more clear historical design influences than others, they all have a sense of retro-inspired timelessness: being from somewhere in the past which you can't quite place. I was careful to spend time examining how design from different countries and time periods actually appeared, rather than how I thought they might. This research phase, which continued throughout the project, was incredibly informative and interesting. If there’s one thing I love more than design, it’s design plus history.|
