12 Plates


Editorial Design / Cover Design / Visual Identity / Visual System


12 Plates is a cookbook that comprises worldwide Michelin chefs’ signature dishes. This cookbook not only demonstrates a diverse recipe but the story behind each Michelin chef and their dishes.

The book cover is constructed by a layer of tracing paper to demonstrate the idea of discovering fine dining culture with these world-famous chefs. To illustrate the art of plating, negative space has taken its’ place to showcase the high-end look and feel across the page. A set of dim but vibrant colors is assigned to be the chapter opener to capture the mood of each chefs’ signature dishes. This color palette also has the ability to tell a better story of each chef’s restless work ethic and their years of experience.

十二道菜是一本集結了世界各地三星米其林廚師的食譜書。這本食譜書不僅是一本工具書,裡面結合了各個米其林大廚的經典菜色,創作的過程以及各個廚師任職餐廳的詳細介紹。

書的一開始利用了描圖紙透視的特點去表達進入米其林餐廳的神秘感,利用透視的元素開啟閱讀的氣氛。書封使用了特牌字體加上負空間去勾繪高級餐飲的華麗感,此外負空間也是這本書的主視覺,利用負空間以及線條元素表達米其林廚師擺盤的藝術。

色調的選擇也是這本書的一大設計重點,不管是冷色系或是暖色系每一個章節使用了深沈的色調去勾勒出每位大廚的內斂以及精湛的廚藝。
