a cafe creates community by storytelling…on plates

April 1, 2013



A London cafe is creating community by featuring diners’ stories on plates used to serve customers. This article says “Users are asked to describe these fun café reminiscences and stories and then pick a font.” Customers of the cafe design their stories online and then the restaurant fires the designs onto plates.

It’s kind of like paint-your-own-pottery meets storytelling meets cafe. Seems like a fun way to create community among customers. I think the end result is pretty cute, too.

See some of the designs here.
