We’ve been rather busy the past few months creating a new website for food and lifestyle photographer David Loftus. David needed to refresh his online presence, taking inspiration from his illustrative style, incorporating his various social media channels, and updating his website usability across different digital devices.

It was such a fun project to work on; our brief from David was a piece of his wall that he ripped away at for us to use as a visual benchmark! We’re really pleased with the new design – it’s a real fusion of beautiful images and clean white space, balanced with warm vintage touches, and can now be kept continually updated with David’s latest photographic adventures. And David is ‘very happy’ too.

What do you think? davidloftus.com

A Taste of Essex http://www.interstateofmind.com/a-taste-of-essex/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/a-taste-of-essex/#comments Wed, 11 Jul 2012 13:00:39 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2137 At the end of last year, some of us were lucky enough to have been invited out to deepest Essex by Jamie Oliver and his team to help kick-off the creation of his new book, ‘Jamie’s 15-Minute Meals’.

We had a fantastic few days sampling some of the dishes cooked by Jamie whilst brainstorming, sketching and working up some concept ideas using David Loftus’ always beautiful photography. Check us out…

Jamie’s 15-Minute Meals will be published by Penguin books and hitting the book shelves late September 2012. Have a look at some other Penguin and Jamie Oliver books we have designed here.

Triple Decker http://www.interstateofmind.com/triple-decker/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/triple-decker/#comments Wed, 11 Apr 2012 11:03:30 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2038 My long time friend David Loftus launched his very own cookbook ‘Around the World in 80 dishes’. What is very special about David is that he is a photographer who has such a creative eye that he not only makes food and its surrounding look stunning, but captures the story behind the food at the same time.

His first book tells a wonderful story through food and epitomises David’s amazing and beautiful skill.

Spotted in Waterstones Chiswick were three books, David’s own, Two Greedy Italians Eat Italy and Jamie’s Great Britain no less, on the ‘New Books’ stand – all shot by David.

Jamie’s Great British Wallpaper http://www.interstateofmind.com/jamies-great-british-wallpaper/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/jamies-great-british-wallpaper/#comments Wed, 26 Oct 2011 12:04:21 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=1783 If you take a look on celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s Website and Twitter page you will see he has chosen to use a page from the introduction of Jamie’s Great Britain as his backdrop, designed here at the studios of Interstate Associates.

Take a look for yourself !

Also, last night saw the first of six programs of the new series of ‘Jamie’s Great Britain’. Jamie ventured the South East of the country starting at London’s East End and going on to Southend-on-Sea. Cooking a handful of recipes from the Jamie’s Great Britain book as well as visiting a few other features, really made the book come to life. Can’t wait for the next show!

 

Take a look at our case study if you want to see more about Jamie’s Great Britain book.
