meet our intern eleanor

Eleanor has been our intern for the past two weeks and has just finished working with us. Let's catch up with her!

Where are you from and what did you study?

I am from Essex and I am currently studying Graphic Design at London Metropolitan


How did you end up at Salty Studio?

I found Salty Studio when researching into food design studios in London through reading

Maud’s article on The Dutch Institute of Food and Design. From there, my university

contacted Maud for a two-week work placement, which is how I got my placement at Salty


What does food design mean to you?

Food design is the combination of both food and design. This includes getting creative with

food, it's surrounding, and finding meanings within food.

If you were a type of pasta, which one would you be?


Favourite dish?


Favourite restaurant?

A small Turkish restaurant called “Bogaz” where I was first introduced to Turkish food.

Which designers/people inspire you?

There are so many, however, I recently discovered graphic designer, Sarah Hyndman whose

work and research explores typography through the human senses. Bompas and Parr Studio

because of how they combine design with jelly, playing with its form and creating

imaginative events with food.

Sarah Hyndman

Favourite cookbook?

The Great British Bake Off Everyday because I love to bake in my spare time and I love the

simple graphic illustrations found inside. I also like how there are different recipes inside,

ones that I have never tried before.

What gift did you recently give to someone?

A one-year subscription for a genealogy website.

What future trends would like to see happening in the next few years?

I would like to see community kitchens in the future to bring people together through

cooking, sharing and eating. This will bring different cultures together living in the same

streets and could perhaps highlight any similarities they share through food.
