WE SPREAD THE FOOD DESIGN JOY
by bridging the gap between the food industry and creative professionals
Our food systems are broken and it is up to us to do something about it, together. At OSFD, we look at food because food is everything - a political choice we make two or three times a day, the strongest social glue, food is life. And we use Design because design is the reliable scalable creative process that has the power to bring about meaningful impactful and lasting interventions.

A fantastic professional who truly cares and puts his heart into his work.I felt I could completely trust his technical expertise and creativity working with food.
