For whom is Food Design Thinking?


FOOD COMPANIES

Food Design Thinking is for food companies wanting to create new and innovative products while gaining a deep understanding of their food design context and their target user/consumer.


CHEFS AND RESTAURANT OWNERS

Food Design Thinking is for chefs and restaurateurs who understand that there is more to an eating experience than what is on the plate, and want to learn a creative process to create new dishes and cohesively design the food vessel, the environment, and the service staff interaction with customers.


EATING DESIGNERS AND CATERING

Food Design Thinking is for eating designers and catering businesses who want the tools to always generate new and innovative ideas what are meaningful to their clients as well as sustainable.

FOOD DESIGN vs 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.


DESIGN THINKING vs 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.
