Morgenmete is a food journal exploring the absurdity of life through the setting of breakfast. 

Not your typical food journal, Morgenmete is a bi-annual print journal covering breakfast that combines humorous writing, photography and illustrations in a sendup of curated culture. 

"Beautiful art direction, photography, and words full of fluffy, syrupy, yolky hilariousness. It's like a dish of chicken and waffles for your eyes! Morgenmete belongs on every breakfast table and/or nook in America. If there's one high-end satire magazine focusing very specifically on breakfast that's worth backing on Kickstarter, it'd be this one.”

- Hassan Ali, Creative Marketing Director at Onion Inc

We're working closely with Hemlock Printers to make sure the physical journal is stunning, incredible to hold and a print piece you'll be proud to display.

From the Guy Who Brought You the Summer of Ice Cream Sandwiches

I'm an Atlanta-based art director who has made bright and colorful brand work for MailChimp, CNN, Slack, Target, Samsung and others. 

My first print explorations were crafting newspapers around a summer of ice cream sandwiches and Link in Bio, an absurd look at self-promotion. Since I was a kid, humorist writing has been with me but not until now did I embrace my inkling to explore breakfast in a satire setting. Everything has been leading me to this.

I've had published writing on CNN, VSCO and First We Feast, and TIME Magazine has named me one of the Top 50 Instagram Photographers. I spent the last two years writing 10,000 words on breakfast and learned a ton.
