"Nirea means Mine in Basque. This is the name chef Martín Berasategui, holder of 3 Michelin stars, has chosen for his signature wine. This design of irregular lines recreates the final preparation of an haute cuisine dish: each ingredient is situated with precision in a seemingly disorganised architecture but which remains perfect equilibrium, leaving nothing chance."
Studio Spotlight: Erik G. de Lopidana
Erik is a design student at Idep, Barcelona; Spain:
"This [project] is about a premium selected food by a michelin stars winner chef; Joan Roca, a spanish chef who stands out in his kitchen for the traditional of the ingredients and the traditional base of his work. The idea has been to accentuate the traditional values and the fresh products of this line of nourishment, typical of the Mediterranean diet. The important thing is not the plate in if, but the ingredients and the good hands that have been behind his preparation. The project consists of three boxes for frozen products and an olive oil and a bottle of wine vinegar; quite Mediterranean food. The pack is solved by a principal image of a the ingredients that have been in use in the recipe of the chef, with an almost pictorial treatment, and a reservation with a sight of the plate prepared in the second term; close to the technical characteristics of the plate."
Student Spotlight: Gordon Ramsay Line
New work from José Luis García Eguiguren, a Masters of Packaging student at Escola Superior de Disseny in Spain:
"Our assignment was to create an elegant product-line for a famous chef. I chose Gordon Ramsay, a renowned UK chef who has received 10 Michelin stars. For this, I utilized a clean and simple design that emphasized the typography as a differentiating element to accompany the photography. Instead of laying out the food as it would appear on a plate, it is placed in a more artistic manner as if it was a sculpture. I used photographs on the lateral panels of the boxes in order to create a more dynamic brand (example: escargots and marmalades). As you can see, it’s a very clean, elegant and simple way to create a brand that is unified by a typographic style."
