starting 13th of September, we’ll spend 10 weeks digging into the vast, largely unexplored world of Food and Design. Each week we’ll dig deep and re-examine society through food.

We’ll explore Food and Design together and how it touches your life and the lives of those around you. You’ll be given a new challenge every week to help you apply the ideas and the inspiration you gain.

You’ll be encouraged to join in the online community where you can meet other food and design explorers just like you that want to connect with their food.

You’ll be able to share ideas, experiments, successes, errors, and discussions in our closed group of inspired foodies. There will be lots of moments to get answers to your questions about your personal projects and to focus on creative and strategic growth within your own life and work.

Here’s what you’ll master in Food & Design Dive:


Basics & History of Food and Design

It’s hard to know where we’re going if we don’t know where we’ve been.

We’ll kick off with a bit of Food Design History and a big picture of all that it entails.

It’s a great way to get your wheels turning about the possibilities!


Senses & Sensuality

Food is the perfect tool to engage people’s senses on a primal level.

How can we use creative thinking to engage our senses in unexpected ways? How can we give meaning to what we experience? What are the results of engaging with people through food?


Human Connection & Rituals

Food has always been at the center of human relationships – be it hunting together or gathering around the table.

We’ll examine the many layers, rituals, and traditions that exist between humans and their connections to each other through food and work to design ways to bring these ideas into the modern world.


Culture & History

Food plays a pivotal role in our history and in our day-to-day lives. We’ll examine how it’s helped shape our past and present and can potentially inspire our food’s future.

Consider all the people that have been, are, and will be on earth and that food has been the reason for wars, the bringer of peace, and the source of life.

How can we build new food culture?


Future Food

The food we eat and the way we eat it will not be the food of our future.

Climate change, overpopulation, and the limits of non-renewable resources will all affect our food’s future.

Adding in the fact that mankind is forever changing our habits and lives, we will need to find a way to contribute to a more healthy and intelligent connection to our future food.


Psychology & Behaviour

Food presents some of our greatest paradoxes! We need to eat, but not too much. We love some animals, but happily eat others.

We’ll dig deep into the human psyche and look at how food drives us and our behaviour and ponder how we can use our knowledge to create environments that lead people to naturally choose what’s right for them.


Material & Play

Food is another raw material that can be converted into endless things.

We’ll discuss new ideas of what we can create as well as how to use waste-streams from food production to create valuable items and less waste.


Nature & Sustainability

What we eat determines our landscape, our city planning, and even our biodiversity.

Can we design with nature or is there a way to create more appreciation for what we already have?

We’ll examine how creative thinking can be applied to these larger systems and how to approach it in practical ways.



It may seem unorthodox to discuss ethics in a creative process, but it’s imperative to consider ethics when designing solutions.

We want to free our minds and explore without limits at the same time that we create results that are aligned with our inner, ethical compass.

We’ll look at the many angles of this balancing act.


The Big Q&A!

Food and Design is a huge (HUGE) field. You’re bound to have a lot of questions. This is where you get all your answers along with some extra tips and tricks so you can turn your knowledge, experience, and insights into reality.

Once I started working with Marije, I felt instantly comforted. It was reassuring to be encouraged to pursue my dream.
