Meet the Designers

Pavlina, Greece

“I chose to focus on camping food because it can be so delicious! When you have tasty food, it makes you love camping so much that you never want to go home. Whether you choose to feast on a spicy stew with beans and Swiss chard, or a tasty barbecue, no camping trip is complete without a Swiss Army Knife!”
Designers's Profile

Luis, Mexico

“My design was inspired by a classic food of my beloved Mexico city, the well-known Tacos al Pastor (tortilla with marinated pork meat and a combination of dried chilies, spices and pineapple) I'm so proud of my roots and my culture, and this is the best way to show this! I am also the designer behind the Banana Split design.”

Andrei, New Zealand

“I love the duality of lemons: too sour to be eaten by itself but magical when used in cooking. Regardless of where you are born, lemons will be sour for everyone, the only thing that matters is what you do with them. For my design, I sought inspiration in Art Nouveau and 17th-century botanical drawings.”
