Passionate people publish on blogs. For every angle of life, there is a blog. Times Online now has published what they consider the 50 of the world’s best food blogs. Most of them ‘just’ focus on food alone and recipes, the training wheels for chefs. But there is so much more to it…
In the Fall of 2006, Michel Gagné was contacted by Brad Bird to create a series of animated vignettes for his movie Ratatouille. The concept was to design and animate abstract representations of what the character was tasting. After discussing ideas and concepts with Brad Bird, he created a series of images to illustrate potential ideas of how the taste could be visualized in an abstract way. These were reviewed by Brad and shown to the music composer as inspiration.
A great example of how to make something abstract like taste very concrete.
I’ve always wondered how food visualizations effect our senses. Some people make it into their daily work to give food the best presentation. In 2007, they had their International Conference on Food Styling and Photography: A World View of Business, Techniques, and Design. Loved to have been there.
