Art Nouveau Meets Contemporary Design
illustration & packaging independent study
I've found that the most compelling movements in Graphic Design history have been Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Arts & Crafts. Mucca and Morris' use of line compelled me to purse my own illustrative style speaking to these artists. Inspired by the bright color patterns of Art Deco, I created many color palettes to choose from before settling on four distinct color treatments. Adding a contemporary touch to these patterns, I chose to create tea tin packaging for a collector's edition.
The following are paper mockups.
