CNHS Digital Media and World Cuisine Students Collaborate on Food Truck Project

Colts Neck High School students in Angela Bavaro’s Digital Media and Amanda DaSilva’s World Cuisine classes recently worked together on a food truck project.

The objective of the World Cuisine classes was to identify regions of the United States including the cuisine/cooking methods, culture, geography, and climate of each.  The students were required to research their assigned region and then create a food truck with a menu and logo to showcase the information they have gathered about the region.  The design of the truck was a big part of the project, it was required to reflect the characteristics of the region. The Digital Media students stepped in to help with the logo design.  Students in the World Cuisine classes acted as clients of the Digital Media students and "ordered" specifically designed logos to be created for their food truck business.  Digital Media classes utilized Adobe Illustrator tools and interpreted food truck logos created by the World Cuisine classes to create an appealing final product.

At the culmination of the project, the Digital Media classes were invited to the World Cuisine classroom to see the final products and vote on their favorite.
