True to this moment, we became friends with Lizzie Darden through the Internet. The recent University of North Florida grad majored in Graphic Design, “with a minor in How to Survive Off Redbull for Four Years,” she told MOLD. “I love to work with food because I think it’s something everyone has a universal connection with.” Her unconventional food styling and candy-colored photography for the likes of Method, Sugar Bouffant and Skinny Dip caught our eye on Instagram and we’ve been double-tapping ever since.
For MOLD’s design week newspaper, SNACKS #01, Darden created “True Hot Dog,” a great example of her love of food puns. “A True Hot Dog isn’t something you’d find at a hot dog cart on the streets of New York,” Darden explained, “but it’s the most honest form of frank there is!”
In celebration of New York Design Week we’re proud to announce SNACKS #01, a limited edition newspaper and poster collection featuring 18 artists and designers upending the visual tropes of food and design. Win a copy + our HungryEyes Pineapple pin collaboration through our @thisismold Instagram giveaway or pickup SNACKS #01 at any of our select Distribution Partners in New York City.
