NOTE: In September of 2014, Food Font began to change the focus of the project from creating a design tool to instead creating printable alphabets and partnering with other free online design tools.
In April the Food Font activity was done at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Students, faculty and staff worked on making 2 CIA (Cleveland Institute of Art) food alphabets. During the lunch hour, people made letters out of some of their lunch food. Each letter was photographed and will be part of the 2 CIA font sets that will be used in the Food Font interactive design tool.
We created 2 food alphabets:
The CIA Vending machine food alphabet (made of food from the vending machines)
The CIA Packed Lunch alphabet (made of food from food from packed lunches)
Thanks to everyone that participated!
Food Font is a project comprised of food and design workshops, font making activities and the use both printable and downloadable food alphabets accessible at foodfont.com. The project supports education, interaction, and communication about food, health, and design.
Why not play and write with your food?
