Over the course of 3+ months, the information, recipes, and photographs featured in this publication were carefully curated, researched, and designed in order to provide students with a resource of easy, cheap, nutritious, and tasty meals. The original intent for this work was to reach UGA’s core student body, but the utility of it stretches beyond university students and really applies to anyone who has a hard time creating their own meals, or even someone who just needs more variety in what they cook.
This publication features UGA’s academic calendar events through August 2018–July 2019, 24 student-friendly recipes, and nutritional information about each one. The calendar also includes info about when and where the Athens Farmers Market meets so users can have the opportunity to purchase their produce from local sources.
Using the format of a desk calendar allows students to actually use this item in their day-to-day lives, not just for the recipes. I encourage users to try scheduling nights bi-weekly or once a month where they can get together with friends and use these recipes to make a meal. Not only does this lessen the cost per person, it encourages social interaction, something university students sometimes have a hard time fitting into their schedule.
This project was my capstone for the University of Georgia's Graphic Design Program. It was on display in a gallery at the Lamar Dodd School of Art from March 29th through April 6th, 2018.
