Spanakopita has always been one of our favorite dishes that mom makes, so I decided to try making it myself. Here’s how it went down.
I designed a food & wine magazine a couple weeks ago, really enjoyed the project, and drooled a lot while working. We were allowed to pick whatever topic we wanted, and only had to do a few sample pages- a cover, department spread(s), and a 6-page feature spread. Here’s what I came up with!
Click on the images to view them at a larger size. The cover is shown alone, and the subsequent pages are shown as spreads.
Some of the photos and copy are my own, but I also took from other sources (and were this anything other than just a class project I’d be more diligent about sourcing and credits). Thanks to Rosa Behrens for the delicious looking festival food pics.
And here is the result of the last food photo shoot I did. We had to rebrand an existing product, and I picked the controversial Vegemite, because Australians love it, Americans hate it, and I honestly just wanted to taste it. Oh and because of that Men At Work song.
The company says that even a small amount of it can provide a lot of nutritional value. It’s usually shown in ads as a brown smear on a piece of toast which looks as gross as it sounds (see original ads below), so I put together something a little tastier looking. I also wanted to give the product more of a gourmet feel, so I changed their logo and color scheme, and went for a more elegant design in this ad I put together.
Below are some existing Vegemite ads, and their current bottle design:
