The hot topics of eating and drinking are spawning a range of small, creative companies with innovative concepts. These enterprises are making their own mustards, distilling their own liquor, selling handmade marmalades, or serving grandma’s cake recipes in new ways. Although based on very different ideas, the businesses are all defined by their originality and personal character, which are then reflected and communicated in eye-catching visual identities. These start with names, logos, fonts, and colors and culminate in product, packaging, and shop design.

Using any and all of the components that make up urban and rural landscapes, these mostly spatial interventions bring art to the masses. They turn the street into a studio, laboratory, club, and gallery. Modified traffic signs, swings at bus stops, and images created out of sand or snow challenge us to rediscover our environment and interact with it in new ways. The work is an intelligent and critical commentary on the planning, use, and commercialization of public space.
