International Journal of Food Design (Journal)

ISSN 20566522 , ONLINE ISSN 20566530

The International Journal of Food Design is the first academic, peer-reviewed journal entirely dedicated to food design research and practice. This journal is a platform for researchers and practitioners operating in the various disciplines that contribute to the understanding of food design. The editors are particularly interested in pushing the boundaries of research that connect aspects from culinary arts, hospitality, food science and culture from across various disciplines, such as design theory, design education, design history and industrial design.

We are pleased to announce that from the 2019 volume International Journal of Food Design is now open access.

Although the journal is open towards different background disciplines, knowledge and expertise, it focuses on collecting any food design-related research outcome: research that somehow combines food and design. We define food design as simply the discipline that connects food and design: design applied to food and eating, or food and eating investigated from a design perspective. In other words, among all knowledge on food and eating, we look at research where design has an important role, and among all knowledge on design, we look at research that focuses on aspects of food or eating.
 
Connecting food and design of course means connecting any aspect of food with any aspect of design. For this reason, the journal is interested in pushing the boundaries of research that connect aspects from culinary arts, hospitality, food science, food culture, and any other food discipline, with aspects from design theory, design education, industrial design, design history and any other design discipline.
 
Connecting food and design can also mean looking at how design is or can be used in all aspects of the eating experience. The eating experience is the process that transforms stimuli of an eating situation into emotions, knowledge and ultimately memories. The stimuli are many, and analysing them is a complex issue. Here we are interested in looking at how design can be applied to the control of such stimuli, and therefore, to the control of the different aspects influencing the eating experience. The aspects influencing the eating experience can be grouped into those related to food itself, those related to the eating environment, those related to the relationship between people eating together, those related to the atmosphere, and those related to management, marketing, distribution and manufacturing. We look at how design is applied to the control of such stimuli surrounding any type of food: food eaten at a restaurant, in a coffee shop, or at the cinema, food that comes in a packaging or on a plate, food eaten during physical exercise, food eaten in a space station, food connected to religion, culture or celebrations, etc.
 

How is design used to influence or modify any of the aspects influencing the eating experience? What design methods, processes or theories apply to the design of food or of the eating situation? How should we teach design methods and process theories applied to the design of food or eating situation? And more: is there a scope for a sub-discipline called food design history? Is there a space worth exploring between food history and design history? Between food culture and design culture? Is there a scope for a sub-discipline called food design thinking? Is there a scope for design methods and process particularly designed for food design? These are some of the questions that the articles collected by the IJFD aim to answer.

Special Issue – Healthy Eating

Article submission deadline: 1 July 2019

This special issue would like to emphasise the importance of the ethical, cultural, social and emotional perspectives on healthy eating and how these might be influenced by design. To give just a few examples of questions that we would like to answer with this special issue: Could interventions to stimulate healthy eating be more social? What does this mean for design? Can (or should?) design / designers change our current obesogenic food environment? What design principles should designers of food, of communication about food or of food environments adopt? What is the role of current and future technological developments for this area? Could personalized food printing offer a solution? What new sensor technology will assist people in tracking their food behaviour? How should designers deal with the complexity of healthy eating? We welcome both empirical work and theoretically-informed design case studies since both are needed to creatively tackle the above and the many other questions in this field. 

 

Special Issue – Materiality Between Food and Design

Article submission deadline:  1 June 2019

This special issue wants to focus on the world of food in its relationship with the design of materials, inquiring both the role of materials in shaping the experience of food and vice versa, the food potential in generating meaningful material experiences.

To give just a few examples of questions that we would like to address: Could food sources be introduced to the vast world of production materials? Is it possible for designers to consider the idea of the edible materials as a viable cultural model for the reduction of waste? Considering food as a raw material, can it lead to new solutions and the development of alternative and more sustainable materials? Could we take into consideration the food aesthetic as a creative element to design materials? How could it influence the languages and aesthetics of the materials we are used to? How should designers deal with the relationship with new and traditional technologies to transform food into materials (3d printing, growing, low tech forming processes, and so on)? How have materials influenced the culture of food (preparation, conservation, fruition) and how have they affected and modified people's behaviour? Could we consider materials as facilitators and tool makers (metal and silicone, for example) for cooking and preparing food? Can materials participate in the staging of food and how? How do the food and the object’s materiality interact in different cultures (in the past, present, and future)?

We welcome both empirical work and theoretically-informed design case studies since both are needed to creatively tackle the above and many other questions in this field, especially those that address the issue from a cultural and speculative perspective.

 

General Issues

All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.

The International Journal of Food Design is interested in pushing the boundaries of research that connects aspects from culinary arts, hospitality, food science, food culture, food marketing, eating behaviour and any other food discipline, with aspects from design theory, design education, industrial design, design history and any other design discipline. The journal welcomes contributions on, but is not limited to, topics such as food product design, food packaging, design for food, design with food, interior design, food events, sensory design, food system design, food service/management, food design history, food design theory and food design education.

The International Journal of Food Design is interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary: we welcome articles relating to more than one area of knowledge, articles that create bridges between disciplines, and articles that result from research teams made of scientists with unique expertise all contributing to the same research endeavour. The journal welcomes research articles, literature reviews, case studies and book reviews.

Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication. Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
