Understanding Identity Through Cuisine
Padma Lakshmi helped redefine the food television genre with Hulu’s Taste The Nation. In the series she travels the United Stated exploring diverse immigrant groups and the foods that play a role in defining their cultures. Padma uses food as an entry point to discuss identity, immigration, history, family and more.
We collaborated closely with the team at Part2 Pictures and Padma Lakshmi to develop the show open and an entire system for titling and handling archival footage. The showcase design solution was sumptuous ingredient sequences that combined beautifully shot food footage with both English and non-English titling.
