Most of us uses food emojis from time to time, this designer took things one step further and made a collection of real food emojis that can be eaten.
When you see these real food emojis your first thought should be; Why hasn’t anyone done this before?
Well there have been similar projects, a lot of people have re-created the popular food emojis. The difference here is that the emojis made into food in this project is not actually food emojis. No designer Anna Keville Joyce took the smileys that comes in many different styles and made bigger versions that is edible.
Each emoji represents a country and the set is made out of three different ones. Italy is made out of pasta and tomato sauce. The Mexican emoji uses rice and beans and the Japanese version uses salmon, nori and soy.
The styling was done by Anna Keville Joyce, photographed by Agustin Nieto in the Struka studio in Argentina, read more on all three below.
