Messy Food: The New Prim and Proper?

When I was in Elementary School, my sixth grade teacher told us about her relative that made and dressed up "Big Macs" and other food for photo shoots. She bursted all of our bubbles, revealing that most of the food you see in advertisements are in fact FAKE! Made of plastic, rubber, and other impostors. Regardless of whether the photos were real or fake, it still made me crave the REAL thing!


The Wall Street Journal has an enjoyable article today called…

Photos, photos, photos

One of the easiest things you can do to improve your website is to add photos. Put a few on the home page (or have "rotating photos"), some on the menu page and perhaps even create a gallery page with numerous photos. Regardless of where and how many, here are some guidelines:



1. Have a good photo of the outside of your restaurant. This will help people find you as they drive (or walk) down the street).

2. Have a few photos of the inside. Prospective customers want… Continue

Honestly Deceiving: Being Real with the Restaurant Consumer



From the moment we are born we are marketers.



It starts with ourselves and manifests into some other form down the line. No mater what business direction we end up taking, let’s face it, we are marketing.

Director's Journal: The Art of Food Photography

We’re surrounded by images through billboards, television, magazines,

the internet…the list is long. And since food is a part of everyone’s

life, in some form or another, many of those images are about food.

Some are blah, some are tantalizing, and some go unnoticed. But the

ones that do grab my eye make me wonder and I begin to dissect. Why did

they choose that background, who designed the arrangement, how did get

that cheese get to look so yummy, and the… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
