The Museum of Oxford commissioned me to create a 60pp cookbook for their community project Mixing Matters.
Mixing Matters is a project celebrating the rich culinary heritage of Oxford’s communities.
Started through a partnership with the Oxford Hindu Temple & Community Centre Project, it has involved three other community groups. Participants brought food-related objects which carried meaningful memories, which they shared with others. Inspired by the objects, participants created collaborative art pieces. Favourite recipes were also shared during the sessions. At the end of the project, participants cooked their favourite foods and shared them in a community feast, open to all.
The design clearly signifies all five communities using colours and a labelling system. The project included the development of a bespoke repeat pattern.
