The Online School of Food Design, founded by Dr. Francesca Zampollo, Ph.D. in 2016 and powered by Food Design Nation since 2021, is a transdisciplinary multimodal experiential learning platform. By combining topics around food, creativity of all kinds, and sustainability (social, environmental or economic), we envision breaking the barriers of our current means of education; With the ultimate goal of empowering a talented cohort of enthusiasts dedicated to improving our global food systems.
Through varied learning approaches and hands-on workshops via expert-driven practise, we offer a range of courses from international professionals having diverse creative backgrounds. Our courses are content-based and practice-based and available in prerecorded, live, and hybrid formats. Each varies in duration. Through our mindful, diverse, and resilient community of creators, we are taking baby steps to create the world we want to live in.
Our founding team has a combined 25+ years of experience teaching food design-related courses at well-known universities worldwide including London Metropolitan University, Auckland University of Technology, Zuyd University, HULT International Business School, California College of the Arts, IED Barcelona, Academy of Architecture Mumbai, and University of San Francisco.
