Detroit Evolution Menus Made With Scavenged Materials

Food & Beverage Home

Yesterday the Maker Faire hosted the Can Do Camp at the Eastern Market in Detroit. The day was filled with amazing discussions about the future of creative innovation and enterprise. Young entrepreneurs connected with veterans of business, and many amazing ideas were sparked. Yet it wasn’t all business chatter, thanks to lunch and flowers from Detroit Evolution.
More than just a catering company, Detroit Evolution is a movement encompassing sustainable agriculture, education, and even yoga and bodywork. They created a vegan feast made with locally produced food, and my instantly fell in love with their amazing menu signs.
Created by the talented Jessica Reid, the frames of each menu were a stunning collage of scavenged materials that included wasps nests, bark, turkey tail mushrooms, and even metal bits from the abandoned Packard plant. I love that she incorporated tiny bits of litter like bottle caps and can tabs in with all the natural textures. She did a beautiful job turning information into art.
