Seed Money by Leafcutter Designs

undefined

undefined

undefined

undefined

+ Created by Leafcutter Designs
+ Custom pressed paper filled with seeds then letterpressed to have the design of coins 
+ Plant them in the ground and a plant will grow out 
+ Very ecofriendly way of wrapping a seed - concept of 'Money doesn't grow on trees" 
+ I can utilize this method of creating seeds so that I can customise the shape of the seeds.
+ Embed the seeds myself? Or should I leave them blank that way they won't grow
+ Paper choice is also important in this decision - modern day anxieties (social, news, pressures, conspiracies) -> newspapers

Advertising in Japan [Book]

undefined

+ Simple one color designs - dainty and cute in nature 
+ Very rustic/hand drawn feeling to them 
+ Childish quality - attracts children?

+ Many of the packaging of these products are very simple in nature and are not overloaded with information 
+ I need to be careful not to overload my packaging with too much information which can make the audience feel very frazzled and unsure of what things to look at - simple is sweet 
+ My concept itself is quite complicated so the packaging has to be simple enough to convey the idea across in the easiest way possible or else it might make it difficult for the viewer to understand what is going on.

Collection of Botanical Illustrations

Mandragora radix by Zsófia Döm

undefined

+ Interesting way of approaching botanical illustrations 
+ Combines the traditional look (watercolors, inks on old paper) with parts of the imagination which is similar to what I am attemping to do

[1]

Chris Turnham

undefined

+ Screenprints - creates a flat texture but with the usage of different colors creates some sort of depth 
+ Very nice color palette and printing onto more beige colored paper looks a lot better than printed onto white - I can look into different paper types for my work

[2]

Vintage Botanical Illustrations

undefined

[4]

undefined

+ Very self explanatory illustrations
+ Much more traditional yet still aesthetically pleasing
+ However, I think I would rather approach this subject in a more creative and interesting way rather than staying with the hyperrealistic style.

Pot Plant by Amy Blackwell

undefined

+ Flat design - two color palette 
+ Very simple - conveys message

Medication/Vitamins Packaging

Duncan Daunaught by Chris Homan

undefined

[1]

Happy Pills Store

undefined

+ Both of these address my idea of placebo's perfectly as the medication itself is candy
+ Happy Pills is an actual store in Spain which sells candy in medical packaging 
+ However for my project, I want to focus more on the packaging and not the contents as much as for the final exhibition it is less on what the audience can do with the contents but what they see in the packaging.

Vitamin Packaging by Robert Farrell 

undefined

undefined

[8]

Building Blocks by Marcio Taketomi & his team

undefined

undefined

+ Taketomi wanted a "simple, honest, straightforward design"
+ Both of these designs have a simple color scheme - very simple makes it more attractive 
+ Gets the point across very easily - modern yet sleek at the same time - I should use the same approach for my vitamins design

[6]

undefined

+ Traditional and very eyesore type of vitamin design 
+ Although the traditional method is good for this project as joins the unfamiliar with the familiar, I still want to create something that is visually appealing and one which people would want to buy and find interesting.

Pills

Collection of Seed Packaging Designs

Roof Top Gardens by Laura Zalewski

undefined

+ Uses black outline design on brown paper packaging 
+ Very simple and traditional: conveys the point and easy to identify - I should utilize a traditional design for my seed packaging as the contents of it are not traditional therefore it will make it more contradictory and interesting. 

[1]

Seedbom

undefined

undefined

+ More interesting approach to packaging - however more of the design is based on the usage of the seeds which is not a point in which I am trying to emphasize with my work. 
+ Point and concept of the seed is found in the packaging and design of the packaging not the seeds themselves

[2]

Vegetable Seeds by Sowciety

undefined

[3]

Smith & Hawken's Organic Seeds by Sandra McHenry

undefined

+ More traditional look - I like this look a lot
+ I think it is made with woodcut? I can use lino cut instead as it is easier for me and I know how to do lino cut
+ Simple design and color and titling makes it very easy to identify yet attractive at the same time - I should draw my main design for my seed packaging from something like this. 

[4]

undefined

[5]

undefined

+ Both employ more traditional botanical illustrations - I can try something like this however it might end up being too complicated
+ Includes the scientific name of the plant to make it seem more important and of better quality - I need to come up with scientific names for the plants that I am creating.

Another Studio (Cockpit Arts Visit 2014)

undefined

undefined

undefined

undefined

+ Give to people as gifts which they can assemble and grow themselves
+ Really interesting approach to a card
+ Looks really great after the plant as grown out
+ Creative solution for planting - very well made and excuted
+ Dainty color palette - joyful and playful tone and approach to seed planting 
+ Creative solutions = more interesting than traditional approaches - but with my works, the subject is an unfamiliar one, so a traditional method is probably better for communicating my point or else the whole point gets lost in the creativity. There are still limits.

Approaches to Recipe Illustrations

Felicitas Jala's Illustrations

undefined

[1]

undefined

[4]

+ Great style of illustration with colored pencils and distortion of perspective 
+ First one is more just an illustration on its own without much instruction but second one includes instructions 
+ Very dainty approach to the topic and visually appealing 
+ What it is lacking is showing what the final piece will look like (I need to show the final piece)

mkn design by Michael Nÿkamp

undefined

+ Approaching a dessert dish with a seemingly scientific approach
+ Great way of approaching this, I like the simple look and would like to employ something similar in my recipe booklet
+ Additions of "fig a" and so on, create the illustration that making ice cream is something that is very methodic and important to dissect apart

[2]

Barbara Dziadosz

undefined

undefined

+ Usage of print making and collision of colors to create works
+ Flat texture actually very visually appealing and choppy edges make it seem more interesting 
+ I should continue my use of print making in this recipe book as it will link together better with my seed packets and the print making texture is quite interesting as shown through Barbara's work

Approaches to Recipe Photography

Tarts Unordinary by Früute

undefined

+ Very ordered look to it - labels underneath
+ Birds eye view of the dishes
+ Categorized the different dishes into classic and curious 
+ Against a grey background so the piece can stand out
+ For my project: unsure if I should attempt to make the dishes or I should illustrate them? 

[1]

undefined

+ Separates the sections as well but breaks apart the pieces of the recipe 
+ Against a plain background is vital for the information to be conveyed and the subject to stand out 
+ Very nice and soothing color palette and organization of ingredients
+ However, it doesn't convey a lot of information as to what the dish created is

[2]

Sandro Desii products catalogue

undefined

+ Loaded with much more information than the other two infographics before
+ Provides a cooking time, what the dish will look like and ingredients needed
+ Once again, an ordered look seems to allow the recipe to be followed easier 

[3]

The Banana Cheesecake by Lori Bailey

undefined

+ Separates the different parts of the dish 
+ Very dainty and cute color palette - however I think I should stick with the color palette that I currently have on my seed packets
+ The labeling is a very nice touch in that it is followed by lines so that it won't all be jumbled together and the reader can still find the information if they need it - I can use this in my own work 

[4]

The Anatomy of a Cupcake by Jason Oberholtzer

undefined

+ Similar to the one before 
+ Lines to guide the flow of the recipe easily - utlize lines in my zine
+ Interesting dissection of a dish

[5]

 Overall: I should be careful to not dissect my dish apart too much as it is not something that is previously known my people. The reason that many of the dissected pieces are successful is because the product that is being dissected is one in which people are already familiar with. If I were to dissect my superstitious dishes, it would only cause confusion. However, this has provided me with many great ways in which I can approach the visual imagery for my instruction/recipes booklet.
