The Story

Grace Hopper Celebration 2019

Grace Hopper Celebration is the world’s largest gathering of women technologists. Produced by and presented in partnership with ACM in Orlando, FL, it is a highly-immersive, four-day event fusing high-touch physical and digital experiences unlike anything seen before.

In collaboration with the Amazon Diversity team, Cimone Key Creative Studio designed the visual identity for the recruiting booth, as well as the Black Women in Tech Reception event. These illustrative assets showcased historical women who impacted the tech industry. The artwork was used for the event branding and decoration, swag, gifting, printing and custom event stickers.

Behind the curtains of the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory in Hampton, Virginia sat Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson and Dorothy Vaughan, three black women mathematicians who quietly helped America dominate aeronautics, space research and computer technology. Yet the film Hidden Figures only scratched the surface of their immense contributions.
