The Art of the Meal: Google Translate, m ss ng p eces Bring People Together to Celebrate Food From Different Cultures
Production house m ss ng p eces conceived this pop up restaurant idea with Google, designed all branding components, and produced every aspect of the experience, telling the vibrant story of an experiential event in the #EveryoneSpeaksFood film. The experience entails bringing food from different global cultures to Small World (Google Translates’ free pop up restaurant in NY), for a single meal, illustrating that food is a universal language.
The experience brings dishes and more importantly people from different cultures together, forming a community united by food.
The project was headed by PARTY executive creative director Masa Kawamura, who had recently joined the m ss ng p eces roster. Executive producer Kate Oppenheim explained the impetus for the campaign, “Everyone Speaks Food is an idea that celebrates the connections that we build over a meal and the richness of food cultures around in the world. We were inspired by the way that Google Translate creates functional and personal connects between people everywhere.”
