THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FOOD DESIGN AND FOOD DESIGN THINKING
Food Design is the Design discipline concerned with everything around food and the act of eating.
Food Design Thinking is the process that leads to generating new and innovative ideas for any food and eating-related project.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DESIGN THINKING AND FOOD DESIGN THINKING
Food Design Thinking is a food-specific branch of Design Thinking.
What makes Food Design Thinking, is a series of specifically designed tools and techniques. These are designed to trigger creativity for projects around food, and could not, for example, be used in a general Design Thinking process.
While it is appropriate to use a Design Thinking process for food projects, I argue that when designing food and around the act of eating, adopting a Food Design Thinking process will lead to better and more cohesively designed propositions.
