da Lima, better known as FOODISM360 -the name of her food-centric studio, has an exaggerated interest in the production, preparation, presentation and consumption of food hence the name. The studio is based in Lelystad, a small polder town in the heart of Dutch organic farming. The fertile polder, its landscapes & natural lighting, and the local farmers are a constant source of inspiration to da Lima. As a keen forager, an herbalist and as a former veggie chef, she developed a deep love for whole foods.
After over two decades of serving up -conceptual, strategic, design and culinary- solutions to clients, she decided to do a 180. She’s currently cooking up a storm in her studio to create an online platform for other food lovers & creative minds who are looking for whole foods plant-based visual content, food-centric design and vegetarian and plant-based recipes to use in their new project.
The new FOODISM360 is expected to sprout before the end of 2018.
