I am Genie, a graphic designer who loves to eat and cook. This blog pushes my cooking skills and reminds me to be more mindful. I don’t have a culinary background, but I grew up in and around the various takeouts that my parents owned.
My spare time is spent interneting, watching movies, cooking, eating, playing with our rabbit Tofu and fattening up my husband, The Koala.
I love a lot of different foods but Cantonese cuisine will always have a special place in my heart. The Cantonese eat well and often. Born in Hong Kong, I have lived in New Zealand for almost all of my life. I am always willing to give a new food a try. I adore traveling being a foreigner even if only for a brief moment is always useful to the creative. I adore the mantra “Eat Well. Travel Often”.
My dream job is to work within the food industry as a creative and I think design and food make an amazing combo. I am interested in design and illustration projects, especially those involving food. I am available for book design, logo and branding projects, posters, flyers. Contact me via genie at bunnyeatsdesign dot com or using the form below.
FAQ and not so FAQ
What camera equipment do you use?
Unless otherwise credited, all photos have been taken on my Nikon D5300 with either the standard 18-55mm or a 35mm f1.8 prime. I love prefer natural lighting and like to make my food look good. The food I cook and photograph is 100% edible, usually eaten the moment I put my camera down.
What is your favourite dish?
My ultimate go-to comfort food is this. I am always in the mood for wonton noodle soup. The wontons should be firm and plump with pork and prawns, the noodles should be springy with a tiny bit of chewiness and the broth should be savoury and nourishing. I also love rice.
What’s your design background?
I have a bachelors degree in Art and Design from AUT University which I completed on a full scholarship. After working in print design for 10+ years, I now run my own freelance graphic design company. Seriously. I’m living the dream.
