Country Maps Made From Their Iconic Foods

I have to admit Buzzfeed is an addiction of mine. I usually peruse through it when I need a short mental break from work, and it’s often just a series of hilarious GIFs and funny 35 Facts That Will Make You Feel Old; however, once in a while, I find some amazing content that is undoubtably worth sharing. This project is definitely one of those times!

In this Food Maps series, Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves (with typography by Sarit Melmed) took many iconic foods of countries and continents and turned them into physical maps. These maps show how food has traveled the globe, transforming and becoming a part of the cultural identity of each particular region. The maps were inspired by Caitlin and Henry’s passion for travel—exploring new places through the food you eat is often a portal to the cultural complexities of a nation. This project is a playful representation of their interpretation of food from around the world, demonstrating how food unites people and begins a conversation, as they hope these maps will. Check out all of their amazing creations below!

// U.S. - Corn // Australia - Shrimp // China - Noodles // France - Cheese & Bread // Japan - Seaweed // Africa - Banana's & Plantaines // India - Spices // South America - Citrus // UK Biscuits // New Zealand - Kiwi // Italy - Tomatoes

The A-Z Sign Language Doodles

Happy Snow Day to anyone experiencing yet another winter storm! The federal government is closed today, so I am dedicating my day to some freelance and the blog.

A few weeks ago, I came across the Instagram account of Alex Solis, a designer and illustrator working on a book showcasing the American Sign Language alphabet through a set of signs and adorable illustrations. The project consists of photographing the american sign language alphabet one letter at the time, and integrating a fun character that starts with the same letter. Three days ago, Alex completed the last and final letter for this project, and his kick starter campaign to get the book printed is in full swing! Check out and donate to the campaign here. Below, I pieced the whole alphabet together, so that his entire collection can be showcased in all of its awesomeness. Check it out!
