MA DEGREE IN FOOD DESIGN by SCUOLA POLITECNICA DI DISEGNO in MILAN HAS BEEN STARTED

A new Master degree in Food Design has been started by the Scuola Politecnica di Design in Milan! The programme helps students to develop all the necessary skills to give a creative contribution to an increasingly growing sector, of which Italy constitutes one of the main benchmarks known worldwide!

It is an opportunity not only for students holding a degree in design, marketing and communication, but also for managers and professionals working in the field. The programme combines a focus on food-related markets with the design approach and methodologies. This creates a food designer who is able to manage the design:
– of processes, methods and spaces where products are processed, distributed and consumed;
– of food in terms of its aesthetics, communication and representation;
– of equipment and tools used to prepare and consume food;
– of all the communication activities implemented for the promotion of food products.

The academic activities encompass lessons, design workshops and seminars with the leaders of the food and agriculture industry and of the design field: entrepreneurs, managers, journalists, food critics, designers, architects, publishers and chefs.

The structure of the course also comprises visits to food companies, concept stores, restaurants as well as important gastronomic fairs and events. After the end of the course, students will have an internship experience in a company, agency or firm working in the field. The Master is held in collaboration with important companies and firms of the food industry like: Pepsico, Gatorade, Lipton, Looza, Tropicana and others.

Fosnavåg konserthus

Fosnavaag Cultural Centre is a newly built concert hall on the west coast of Norway. We made a dynamic brand platform that brought their history into the music, and the music into their history.

An anchored story

Fosnavaag Cultural Centre is lying on the weatherly west coast of Norway. Here, by the edge of the mighty atlantic ocean, life has always been at the mercy of what the sea can provide. Inspired by their surroundings and history, we made a story about a meeting between the music and the sea.

Based on the Beaufort Scale, a scale originally used to describe wind at sea, we made a system consisting of 10 logos. Going from calm to stormy, the dynamic identity reflects the contrasts and nuances in both music and the dramatic location.

From dark strings to high falsetto, from intimate concerts to majestic experiences, from deep sorrow to unbridled joy. The story is about the the subdued gentleness of the music – or the strength and temperament of the sea. A musical identity as changeable as the place itself.

Honoring the community

As the concert hall was founded by the local community, it was only natural to honor them in with their very own part of the building. The wall is built up by tiles split into seven categories, ranging from the smallest to the largest donations. A scale itself, just like the rest of their identity.

Being almost four meters high, it has a strong impact on the audience. And inspired by the buildings tiled glass facade, the wall feels like an integrated part of the building.

Javier Mayoral. A gifted painter.

Javier Mayoral is an outsider artist with spanish origin, living in USA. As an extremely gifted painter, he is at the same time an artistic “Camäleon” and seems to be able to visualize almost every idea, from strange surrealistic arrangements to erotic subjects and he has in mind the taste of his buyers when creating his charming small paintings on wooden boards. He places almost daily some new works on ebay and sells with much success.
