Marinde van Leeuwen's Designer Cheese

Posted on February 9, 2009 Under Food

Cheese packaging stinks. And it’s not just because it’s wrapped around a nice aged blue. It seems that when other foodstuffs were getting a much-needed revamp, they forgot all about cheese. Everyone except Marinde van Leeuwen of DesignKAAS. Inspired by tulips, crocheted tablecloths, and Delft Blue, Van Leeuwen went to work designing artistic labels for delicious Dutch cheeses like baby Gouda. There are only a few designs available for order on her site so far,  including one that features a poem about cheese by Mirjam Brandenburg and another that showcases a traditional Dutch landscape (complete with windmill).
