colorful food

Purple turkey, green corn, blue crackers? Looks delicious. Or not. California-based photographer Lawrie Brown highlights the effects of food coloring on our eating preferences and perspectives through her unappetizing ‘Colored Food Series’.
She takes regular meals like pasta, toast, and cereal, and dabs them with vibrant, unnatural colors using latex house paint, presenting us with a different kind of food photography. Many, if not all, will find these meals bizarre and generally not the type you’d label as food porn. If these weirdly colored dishes make you a bit queasy, just think of all the other things we eat that go through so much food coloring processes in industrial food production.

Tom Foerstel : Founder & President

Tom Foerstel

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.


He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.


An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.


One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
