The Art Of Grill is a 192 page cookbook, published by Hungary based M Profood, that contains over 70 recipes with a focus on local ingredients, seasonality, popular spices, carefully planned cooking methods and the latest dietary principles. The book is available in English, Russian and Hungarian, and features cover by graphic designer David Barath.

The book is handmade, features screen printed and sculpted embossed cover with red edge painted detail, and effectively leverages contrast to secure visual impact from a distance and a sense of quality up-close. This contrast occurs in the colour and organic forms of charcoal alongside the condenesend and clean lines of a metallic, red, sans-serif and emphasised by a fabric surface texture and the unusual finish of a sculpted emboss.

So, while founded on the heat and the rough aesthetic qualities of open grills, the materials and finishes manage to work in a level of finer crafted detail, making a connection between food quality and a process not often associated with finesse.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
