A Way of Expression

I love to try new things, from odd vegetables to unique dishes. I find it to be a way to broaden my horizon in the cooking aspect. Take it this way, an artist can create different things and be more eccentric when using more that just basic materials. Cooking to me has become an escape. […]

Food to Me

Food had been just apart of my survival; I didn’t have a close relationship with it till recently. I grew up, in a way, very against food. I would go a lot of night without food when I was little, not because I didn’t have it but because I was stubborn. I would sit at the […]

Redesign by Michaela Kay

I was driving down the road towards our table and right away I noticed a big high arching arch that read Our Table Farm, right away I knew that I was in the right place. Then as I got closer I saw a sign that advertised for their community dance later on that day. I […]

Tracking My Cheesecake

My food product was the Safeway Brand Cheesecake. Because of the cheesecake that I chose was not much packaged or promoted, I couldn’t find much information about it. So I just did a research on the cheesecake in general. I found out that cheesecake was a popular ancient dish in Greece. Later on, it was […]

My ReDesign

“As I walk up to the Our Table grocery store, I notice a beautifully decorated sign with flowers, nicely showing where the grocery store is. Once I come into the front doors, I look to my right and see a great sign representing Our Table’s vision plan for their future. I notice that they have […]

Farm Report

When I was at the farm, I picked the community space to do my prototype. I chose this space because I thought it needed the most help. Although this place has a fairly large space, it didn’t have a lot of things going on. The community space was very boring to me, there were only […]

Our Table, My Redesign.

When we first went and visited Our Table, I found myself being critical immediately. I saw so many things that needed to be changed to improve function, attraction, and atmosphere. I was drawn to the concept of a community space. I am from a small town with a great sense of community, so I find […]

Welcome To Our Table

After touring the farm with my class and getting a first had look at the space we could work with I decided to choose the entrance of the grocery store to do my redesign project on. The grocery store is at the heart of the farm and is the front stage for all of the […]

The Drive-thru “O”

My redesign is more than just a driveway. Besides being a breathtaking entrance, my design serves as an attention getter and to some extent as an illusion. It will make the driveway feel much shorter and more exciting. People will want to visit the farm mainly to see the large sign in person and capture […]

Final Re Design Our Table Grocery Table

As I walking into the grocery store,  I noticed a sigh outside the grocery store called “The Food in our Table.” This was very informative because I know its a grocery store now! When I walked in the store it felt more welcoming. I could hear a gentle slow paced piano music playing back as […]

Farmer’s Market Aesthetic

My redesign focuses on the farmer’s market aesthetic. When I first walked into the store I was let down. I assumed the store would have a homey feeling. After seeing their website and hearing about the farm I expected a farmer’s market aesthetic or a “just got picked off the farm” aesthetic. The new design I […]

Redesign Assignment

As I am walking inside of the little grocery store at Our Table Farms, I noticed how it looked so vintage and modern at the same time! The thing that caught my eye was how there were so many different kinds of decorations around the entire store that actually represented a country looking kind of […]
