Avant Garnish: Designing a Cookbook with my Sister

BY REBECCA GOESLING
@ VOL 3 ON NOV 12, 2015

“Instead of taking inspiration from the cookbook layout we actually took inspiration from things like Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue”


In Avant Garnish: Designing a Cookbook with my Sister from PechaKucha Night St. Joseph’s 3rd Volume, Material Designer Rebecca Goesling discusses the makings of her collaborative new cookbook. Rebecca and her sister Sarah grew up surrounded in creativity, so it's no wonder they set off together to design a cookbook that has eye candy for both foodies and fashion designers.

We Make Carpets

BY MARCIA NOLTE
@ VOL 13 ON FEB 24, 2015

Speaker Marcia Nolte discusses WE MAKE CARPETS, a buisness that does not make carpets. At least, not the kind of carpet you can walk on. Still, one of the visitors of the Dutch Design Week 2010 stepped all over Fork Carpet.

The carpets are not meant to be touched either. But it sometimes happens anyway. ‘Muisjes’ Carpet suddenly had an imprint of a finger. A visitor nibbled on Candybar Carpet. 

But to glue everything down or put an art barrier around it? No. That doesn’t fit with the work. From a distance it may look like a carpet but you have to come close to see it is actually made of clothes pegs. Or some other everyday product.
