Creativity in the Local Food Movement

Don’t you just love it when people get all creative with the topics you love?

Well lately we’ve been admiring from afar the awesome Lexicon of Sustainability (photography of Sustainability initiatives), Perennial Plate video series focused on adventurous & sustainable eating, and Erin Gleeson’s fantastic food photography with a twist.


We wanted to share with you some of our favorite features of each of their work, but strongly encourage you to seek them out and spend some time flicking through more of their fantastic creative outpourings of local food goodness.


First up, the wonderful photography of the Lexicon of Sustainability…

You can find more of the Perennial Plate video series at the website here, or at their vimeo stream here.


The extremely talented Erin Gleeson is based in San Francisco; a highly talented photographer & illustrator, she captures the beauty of food in the rustic surroundings of the Forest on her new blog ‘The Forest Feast‘.  Check out her work here (thanks to Erin for allowing us to ‘borrow’ this beaut image!):

We hope you agree her work is totally amazing.. I’ve never wanted to eat Zucchini bites so much in all my life!  Make sure you check out her professional website here, and The Forest Feast blog here.


We’re looking forward to releasing a few of our own creative projects in the not too distant future. If you know of any other great uses of design / creativity / the arts, to celebrate & catalyse the local food movement, please send us a link!
