As humanity’s voracious appetite wreaks havoc on ecosystems around the globe, we are challenging cultural norms related to the food we consume and refocusing our hunger for a good cause.
On September 10, LPK hosted Invasive Species: Envisioning the Future of Food in America, a special tasting and pop-up gallery at People’s Liberty in Cincinnati’s historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.
Invasive Species was inspired by a photo series developed by food stylist Michelle Gatton, Photographer Christopher Testani and LPK Creative Director Mason Adams, and instigated by Nascense, a collaborative of LPK and independent creatives. An innovative approach to consumer research and generative brand development, Nascense shifts the focus from trends research and evidence to intuition and instigation, planting a seed and pinging the universe to see what comes back.
