As one of the Obamas' most trusted policy advisors and a renowned chef in his own right, Sam Kass has a unique cultural and political perspective on the food crises afflicting our country. Speaking on the second night of Education and Revolution, Sam explained how a lack of proper nutrition in schools, particularly those in low-income districts, is compromising the potential of our country's future generations. Sam weaved a compelling narrative, offering a wealth of both significant data points and personal anecdotes.
OXBOW created a stark yet optimistic tone, realizing Sam's ideas in a series of brief vignettes through the visual lens of an imaginative student. We used bright, playful hues and simple line-work to bring light, and color, to this culturally significant issue.
