There is not a comparable course in the world as the personalized guidance provides a unique trajectory for each student.

Here’s what you’ll master in the Advanced Dive:

WEEK ONE

creative research and exploration

What does it mean to create and how do you start?

What are the steps to take and tools to use to start your research in a way that suits you?

What are inspiring examples of creative research and how can you use it?

+ A PERSONAL GUIDANCE SESSION

WEEK TWO

ephemeral design

What does it mean to work with food or ephemeral substances? When is your design finished and what is your role as a designer working in the realm of ephemeral substances?

+ A PERSONAL GUIDANCE SESSION

WEEK THREE

aesthetics and shape

Literal Food Design might not be too exciting, but the aesthetics and shape of what you create is a very important communicator.

This week we are exploring how you can communicate through aesthetics instead of words.

+ A PERSONAL GUIDANCE SESSION

WEEK FOUR

experience design

Working with food hardly ever creates something only to look at. How can you develop your skills in experience design and understand the mechanics to create an impressive experience in a simple way?

+ A PERSONAL GUIDANCE SESSION

WEEK FIVE

concept creation

What is a solid design concept and how do you develop a concept without choosing the most obvious thing or going for shallow ideas?

How can you create a concept and not get lost in 100’s of ideas?

+ A PERSONAL GUIDANCE SESSION

WEEK SIX

emotional design

Being able to actually touch someone on an emotional level through your creation is an amazing skill. The world is full of generic and meaningless objects and services. There are simple ways to create a unique and authentic experience. We’re going to unveil all the possibilities here.

+ A PERSONAL GUIDANCE SESSION

WEEK SEVEN

prototyping

Ok, coming up with ideas might be easy. But how do you translate your ideas into real things? How do you test if what you imagined is actually working?

This week we’ll be making, making, making and perhaps having others make things so that you have something to work, test, refine and reflect on.

+ A PERSONAL GUIDANCE SESSION

WEEK EIGHT

social urgencies

Let’s zoom out a bit and see how your work fits into the bigger picture of life. Perhaps there are angles you didn’t see before or perhaps you found a very accurate idea to link to an educational system. How does your work fit into the larger issues in the world and how can you connect to that?

+ A PERSONAL GUIDANCE SESSION

WEEK NINE

detailing and atmosphere

Once you are working on a project, you are in a constant state of shaping, of adding and extracting, of boiling down and adding ingredients.

Let’s look at the balance. Sometimes, seemingly unimportant details can make a huge difference. This week is all about balance and finesse.

+ A PERSONAL GUIDANCE SESSION

WEEK TEN

making money

Money in Food and Design is everywhere. This week we’ll go deeper into the systems of making money, investing money and understanding how you can very easily set up a solid money system that links into the development of your work and takes you to the next level.

+ A PERSONAL GUIDANCE SESSION

WEEK ELEVEN

communication and expectations

If you are experienced with working in Food and Design you might know that communication is key.

As food and design is still a new field people do not know what to expect. This week we’ll be focusing on expectation management and you you can make that work for you.

+ A PERSONAL GUIDANCE SESSION

WEEK TWELVE

Final presentation with a big Q&A

Yay!

Marije has really helped me to take my next steps in my career. I have always been excited about food, but I just needed someone who could give me the right reflection and Marije does that in such an infectious and kind way. Through that, I got encouraged to go out of my comfort zone, gain more confidence and even helped me to higher my rates. Since working with Marije, I have doubled my income.
