This past weekend Food Font was at the Ingenuity festival in Cleveland, OH. This two day festival features technology, art, and creativity and had a theme of "feed" this year. One word to say how it went is "Wow." Lots of people stopped by the Food Font area to make a letter, and each day we worked to make two food alphabets.
On Saturday of the event we made a uppercase coff/ tea alphabet and also a corn alphabet. The coffee and tea was from Phoenix coffee, and the corn was from City Fresh.People really seemed to enjoy using the coffee and tea - and there were some interesting and even "fancy" letters that were made. People enjoyed smelling the coffee and working with the variety of teas and coffees that we had.
On Sunday we made a lowercase coffee/tea alphabet and an apple alphabet. The apples were from Bauman orchards. Lots of people stopped by to make a letter and it was fun to watch people work on making larger letters using apples.
Thanks to Phoenix coffee and City Fresh for donating the food for the event and to Edible Cleveland for partnering with us and sharing a booth with us!!
The pictures are now up on the Flickr site and a few pictures are posted below.
A couple of you asked me if you could still donate money to the project - even though the project did not reach the Kickstarter goal.
I recently added a DONATION page to the Food Font website. Individuals can donate directly to the site, purchase the custom prints, and some other things. Please email me if you want more information at Kristen [at] foodfont.com
Here is the link to the project donation page: http://foodfont.com/donate/
Below are some pictures from the Ingenuity festival event - and a special Ingenuity Festival image that I made with the coffee/tea alphabets.
Thanks again for the support!
