ReFraming


There are many creative ways of designing with paradigm & myth, and are all forms of designing in the invisible realms: playing with our interior models, our culture, our ways of seeing & understanding the world around us.  

Designing with mythology in a small way can be re-defining terms, re-claiming words or re-framing some situation. 

Here are some examples..






Inglorious Fruits&Vegetables

An example of re-framing: questioning external beauty & uniformity as a criteria for desirability in produce, re-centering it on nutritional value & avoiding waste, with an original & quirky flavour.

Intermarché launched the Inglorious Fruits&Vegetables, a film, print, poster and radio campaign, celebrating the beauty of the Grotesque Apple, the Ridiculous Potato, the Hideous Orange, the Failed Lemon, the Disfigured Eggplant, the Ugly Carrot, and the Unfortunate Clementine.
Now you can eat five a day inglorious fruits and vegetables.
As good, but 30% cheaper. The inglorious Fruits&Vegetables, a glorious fight against food waste.

In a series of real-life experiments from New Delhi to South Africa to Italy, he gave kids self-supervised access to the web and saw results that could revolutionize how we think about teaching.
