Entomo website design promotes insects as food

A Dublin-based graphic designer has developed a digital resource encouraging people to eat insects.

Named after entomophagy – the practise of eating insects- the online resource for web and iPad uses research, recipes, events and education facilities to confront the prejudices associated with eating creepy-crawlies.

“Eating bugs is not a modern phenomenon,” said the designer. “Entomophagy has been part of many world cultures for thousands of years and today in Thailand, South America, and China, bugs are considered a great delicacy.”

The website features close-range, gourmet images of insects in food as well as simple, black silhouettes used for the info-graphics – all shot or designed by Hanlon.
