An Appreciation of Menus: Art of the Menu

(8 years ago)
A great meal—at an equally great restaurant—can be a holistic sensory experience. Tasty food is imperative, yes, but the ambiance, service, and décor have to support it well. All come together to (hopefully) create a satisfying part of your day, and the menu plays a key role, kicking off expectations of enjoyment (or not). Whether a menu is scrawled on a chalkboard each day or filed away into a leather-bound behemoth book, many restaurants take this notion very seriously. And designers tend to notice these things, whether done well (or not). The folks over at Under Consideration (the astute parent co. examining all things graphic design through Speak Up, the Design Encyclopedia and Brand New) noticed, and have begun to catalog menus from around the world in a new blog, Art of the Menu. It's a new appreciation of the myriad graphic expressions of food. Each menu is presented with thorough images, both as it exists in the restaurant, and as the flat, digital files. Designers are recognized (Pentagram, Mucca), the menu and restaurant get a little blurb, and of course there's room for commentary.(more...)

Core77 Design Award 2011: Pure Water Bottle, Student Notable for Design for Social Impact

Over the next months we will be highlighting award-winning projects and ideas from this year's Core77 Design Awards! For full details on the project, jury commenting and more information about the awards program, go to Core77DesignAwards.comDesigner: Timothy WhiteheadLocation: Kent, United KingdomCategory: Design for Social ImpactAward: Student NotablePure Water BottleA water bottle designed for Adventure Tourists, Aid workers and NGO's which filters and sterilises water from almost any source within two minutes. The product uses a wind up mechanism and is not reliant to external batteries or power.While travelling though Zambia, Africa I realised the reliance people have on chlorine and iodine tablets; these take about 30 minutes to create safe drinking water and leave an unpleasant taste. The aim was to create a product which was compact and light enough for travelling tourists to carry around, while providing; safe, clean and sterile drinking water quickly.I found that people wanted a simple, easy to use product which worked quickly and effectively. I discovered that by using a big filter you reduced the volume of water to can carry. Consequently, I opted for a compact filter with a ultra-violet light bulb to sterilise the water. UV has the added advantage of no distortion to taste. Another challenge to overcome was the power required to power the bulb. I decided not to rely on batteries, but instead I used a wind-up generator, giving limitless supplies of power[..]

Book Review: Dieter Rams: As Little Design as Possible, by Sophie Lovell

(8 years ago)
Phaidon's new monograph on Dieter Rams, As Little Design as Possible follows on the heels of 2009's Less and More and the observations we made there on the man's life remain true. Indeed, just as both titles try to translate his design ethos "weniger, aber besser," into English ("less, but better"), both monographs attempt to distill a man's life and work into photographs while also making it clear that this is a man who wants his work to speak for itself.Consequently, the resultant words and careful photography (e.g. clean product shots with neutral gray backgrounds, super close details, and long shots with context like human hands or objects on shelves) leave it such that most of the pages in each book could be traded with one another without much aesthetic compromise. The major difference, however, is that As Little Design as Possible also has some very nice photos of a few ugly spaces. While Less and More ended with the 2009 exhibit of his work in the Suntory Museum in Osaka Japan, As Little Design as Possible began there. Sophie Lovell was offered unprecedented access to his archives, his home and his process.As Little Design as Possible has some pictures of some pretty cluttered workspaces. Tools, boxes, saws, bins stuffed with rolled paper, chairs cracked and delaminated, a classic Braun sign showing signs of rust, and even a box of Suntory Whiskey in the background (apropos), but on the page directly opposite the whiskey, below a black and white photo of a jazz era[..]
