Travel guide publisher Footprint Handbooks has introduced a new look for its range of books, in a bid to extend their appeal beyond the traditional readership of seasoned travellers. Bath design group Mytton Williams has developed the latest editions, bringing in colourful new covers to help the guides stand out on the shelf, plus new type and maps to make information easier to access.

Healthy eating is being reinvented for Dubliners in the form of a new fast food restaurant called Nude. ‘The idea is to make healthy food more attractive to everybody – wraps, juices and soups, rather than hippy food,’ says David Quirke, who is behind the concept. The 21st century-style interiors are by Paul Daly Design Studio, with lime green graphics by local designer Neil O’Keefe. Quirke plans to turn Nude, which opens in Dublin on 26 April, into a full-sized fast food chain.
