Some context about the project

When Celia Brooks came out with her 9th cookbook, “SuperVeg”, she was looking for a product to not only promote her new book but also to promote what she calls the 25 healthiest vegetables on the planet.

You know she knows what's she's talking about if you've ever been on one of her food tours around London called Gastrotours.

She used to be the personal chef for Stanley Kubrick and this was a perfect product for her to promote herself at the Childwickbury Arts Fair that Stanley's wife Christiane hosts annually at the Kubrick's family estate.

You can see my case study on how I built her website in another post if you're interested in learning more about her business.

Services provided:

  • Have a food-related product that she could sell.
  • Create something beautiful to show her love of vegetables.
  • Get her message out about the 25 healthiest vegetables.

Development & research

I took a leaf out of Nicholas Rougeux's book and found creative commons imagery of vegetable illustrations and cleaned them up and made them my own. I have a love for his design work and dedication. We're definitely kindred spirts and both from the Midwest USA.

Finding imagery was the hardest part. There are some amazing platforms out there to explore, but not one of them is a complete directory of sources. Maybe some day we'll be so lucky as to have a website dedicated to archiving imagery of the past more fully.
