The chefs at the Culinary Academy (Kulinarisk Akademi) teach you how to make food with recipes customized for your mobile phone.

Step by step

Recipes are broken down into simple steps, with short videos showing how the chef works. You can concentrate on one thing at a time, allowing you to continuously compare what you're doing to the video.

The recipes are written, made, and recorded by the chefs in Foodsteps.

Smooth and tight

The font, icons, and animations consist of smooth shapes and motions. They balance the precise, almost strict language used in the recipes.

  • Månedspris: 39,-
  • Skjermbilde av videokurs
  • Animert favorittmerke
  • Ikoner

The icons, colors, and typography describe a product that is simple, unpretentious, but also of.a high quality.

The chameleon

The colors automatically adapt to the pictures. This allows us to make a colorful app without having the colors clash with the images. For food, it's especially important that the colors have a good harmony.

The colors change automatically to best suit the content.

  • Symboler og tall
  • Ikoner med betegnelse

The icons are designed with the same scale and design language as the font.

The font was developed in cooperation with Good Type Foundry. The capitalized letters mix the design of numbers and letters.

Numbers and similar capitalized letters side by side;  2Z, 3E, 4A and 9Q.

In collaboration with Good Type Foundry, we've created a font that is wholly unique while still being easy to read.

The forgotten pages

Pages with privacy policies, settings, and search results often tend to be forgotten or less prioritized in traditional design processes. We believe that an eye for detail strengthens the user experience.

We've considered the pages that are often forgotten.

«Foodsteps would never have appeared the way it does today without the excellent collaboration we've had with Behalf. Like us, they're passionate about uncompromising quality, and we respect and complement each other wonderfully. Behalf has also shown project management that really commands respect. »
