The Julia Child Award & Logo
I was chosen out of many international proposal submissions to design the Julia Child Award logo as well as the physical award itself. I was to carry out all responsibilities in developing a concept for both the logo and award, as well, responsible for all steps in the production stages.
INITIAL CONCEPTS IN ILLUSTRATOR:
One main idea had sparked with the foundation. The concept that the logo resembled the teaching nature that Julia possessed. Altering the ‘u’ and ‘i’ in her name, representing teacher and student. The ‘u’ and ‘i’ was then later suggested to be a rolling pin and Julia’s infamous copper egg beating bowl. They were also drawn to the idea of the logo being in a circle format, which also had a slight detail of a fleur-de-lis; representing Julia’s French cooking. These small details were then refined and made into the logo you see today.
INITIAL AWARD SKETCHES:
DIGITAL INTERACTIVE MOCK-UP OF THE AWARD:
Currently in the third stage, which is the process of producing the final award. Siliarly carried out as the second stage. They will be able to use the prototype to structure the award into a cast, which will make the process much easier.
