The article 'Food for Thought' for Simon Fraser University's alumni publication, aq Magazine, talks about a massive renovation to the SFU dining hall and café in response to a survey in which 6,000 students were in favor of: wider variety, international flavors and healthier foods available around the clock.
Mark Hoffmann was asked by art director Brian Donahue of Be Design, to illustrate a feature article on 'Food's Future' for Macalester Today's summer issue.

Brian was a great supporter of the project, and encouraged the realization of Mark's art becoming the first ever illustrated cover for the magazine.
