Maybe it’s that lunchtime is approaching while we are writing this, but we can’t take our eyes of these spring rolls from Phi and her amazing blog Princess Tofu.
Manifesto Futura | http://mfutura.mx
"Wallpaper* magazine invited us to collaborate in a project that would be exposed during design week in Milan. The task was to create 5 food items that were focused around one particular ingredient, also the branding and packaging. We worked with Alfredo Villanueva, choosing "chili" as our main ingredient, so we could stand out our culture bringing the name of "Mexico" to an international exhibition not only by design but also by it’s gastronomy. In a world where everything screams, everything is flashy, BRUTO remains an outsider, confirming that what is well made can get along with simplicity. What is startling is not necessarily noisy."
Born in 2008 as an Independent Design Studio, Manifiesto Futrua is a boutique-like workshop that seeks to redefine the Mexican design values, maintaining functionality, wit and charisma. We specialize in resource optimization paying attention to every detail. Nowadays our HQ is based in Mexico, but we have clients all over the world.
Another mixed media piece (Copic, pen and ink, gouache, digital). I was looking through a book of Edo period prints not too long ago, and almost forgot how imaginative the images, and the characters featured in them, were. Along with the slice-of-life illustrations were fish that caused earthquakes on the regular, and rats that acted as book keepers for merchants.
