Canfood Alphabet

This alphabet is inspired by the street “West Kruiskade” in Rotterdam. This street has a lot of different cultures and nationalities. We had a school assignment about this street and while researching I entered multiple stores. To me all the food-stores had one thing in common : canned food. You have Dutch stores, Asian, Indian,… and they all sell the same canned food. I found this a nice metaphor to capture the diversity of the street.

I originally designed the cans on A6 paper with felt pens separately, afterwards I scanned them all in and made them into a poster. The biggest version of this design is printed on an A0 forex.

Prints of the canfood Alphabet or separate prints are available, in different sizes. Contact me when interested.
