I’m so excited to finally share this project! My friend Brigitte is the leading lady at White Apron Chef, where she’s a personal chef and has a school to train personal chefs on how to run their businesses. We’d decided earlier this summer to do a collaboration marrying design and Bigitte’s tasty as hell recipes, because who doesn’t love deliciously-designed goodies? The theme of this project was simple summer salads that take advantage of seasonal produce and are anything but your traditional green salad, and the goal was to make something that was shareable (because B’s recipes are fabulous!) and also looked amazing.
It was also a challenge: most recipes and food blogs rely heavily on photography to make the recipes look exciting and delicious. Since we didn’t have photography to work with this time around, I instead created a series of fun line icons and coordinating patterns showing off the ingredients we used in each recipe. Plus, these icons were so fun that I’m going to be using some of them on products when the new shop launches next week (eggplant mug, anyone?)
Here’s one of the recipes – I can’t wait to make this one!
