Marmalade Bleue’s designer Danielle Evans cleverly takes the art of typography to the next level with these visually stimulating textual food letters. Evans creatively shapes everyday food items like sugar, flour, meat, seeds and coffee into recognizable letters of the alphabet to create fun and interactive ad posters.

Evans, based out of Ohio, brings typography out of a digital realm by incorporating food to create 3D food constructions. Evans uses a variety of methods to create these beautiful cursive letterings. For example, sometimes Evans will begin by sketching the letters onto a surface and then go back in with the food item. Often Evans uses brushes and paper cutting to get the lettering just right. Many of Evan’s work has been featured in magazine editorials and product advertising.
