Jesmond Public School wanted to celebrate its multicultural roots by producing a quality cookbook showcasing the students, their families and their exquisite dishes. I saw this as a fantastic opportunity to give back to my local community by offering my creative expertise to the project. I was engaged to design the 85 page publication ‘Around the World in a Lunchbox’ whilst completing my Honours year. The overall design was inspired by a scrapbook theme and contains Polaroid framed photos, handwritten typefaces and textured backgrounds. The cookbook was extremely well received in the local community and has sold over 500 copies in the Hunter region.
