Vibrant Palate explores the connections between food photography, visual aesthetics, color palates and biodiverse produce. The combination of these topics renders out in the form of a photography book with 18 colorful and unusual fruits and vegetables that are organized by color. My research questions how visual effects and techniques with color, lighting and design provoke the senses. How is color a defining element in both food, design and appetite? Can creative design help to increase biodiverse fruit and vegetable consumption? Through top-view photographs of the produce, and a color glossary in the middle of the book, I hope to be able to integrate visually indulging imagery and foster a curiosity for naturally occurring colorful foods. The color glossary serves as a color palette reference showing two hues that represent each produce. This carefully curated two page color glossary includes hex codes, RGB and CMYK information as a reference for designers and creators to arouse inspiration from my book. My goal with Vibrant Palate is to provoke people to eat a wider spectrum of produce that is more colorful, nutritious and exciting. My book will serve as an encyclopedia of these fruits and vegetables with color, flavor notes, season availability, ways to integrate them into more vibrant plates and experience a wider variety of flavors on our palate.
