Hey there! My name is Steffi Braganza and I have a strong passion for product design. I have extensive knowledge and experience in graphic design and packaging design as well. Im a designer during the day and an amateur cook by night. I love trying to merge my love for food and design. If you dont find me cooking up a new design you'll probably find me trying to silence the chaos in my kitchen. That being said, I make sure I do an exceptional job when it comes to design and regardless of the condition of my kitchen I do have a knack for paying attention to detail.

Breaking Bread and Boundaries : finding Home In Every Bite

Raised outside of their "passport" countries, Third Culture Individuals (TCIs) often experience a lack of rootedness and belonging, and home is often everywhere and nowhere. Childhood food memories can provide the sense of connection and identity TCIs crave. Four Qatar-raised TCIs, from very different backgrounds share memories of their childhood comfort foods, now hybridized dishes that reflect their unique third culture experiences. Each dish, in turn, inspired the creation of a separate set of cooking/dining ware designed to trigger a specific sensory memory: the sight, smell, touch, or sound associated with the original comfort dish. This specialized cooking/dining ware honors the unique experiences of TCIs, while (re-)creating a central identity for them and reconnecting them with cherished food memories so they can feel at home wherever they are. Production : Interdisciplinary Designer Noora Al Melhim.
