JBF Awards 2017
The James Beard Foundation is the nation’s pre-eminent food organization whose mission is to celebrate, nurture, and honor chefs and other leaders in order to make America's food culture more delicious, diverse, and sustainable for everyone. The Beard Foundation holds an annual awards ceremony and gala to celebrate the year’s best in the food world. The 2017 Awards focused on the role of food as a connecting force in the digital world. Simplissimus created a series of original, James Beard-focused emojis using punctuation (a tongue-in-cheek nod to early digital iconography) and used them as the focal point of the branded campaign and gala event graphics.
