My color theory class taught me the sensitivity of color and how strong color use improves the appeal and function of a designed product.
I designed a personal wallet with a monogram of my initials and a personal food container for a delicious snack of pistachio yogurt with dried cherries and crushed almonds. Mmmmmmm.
my favorite color: green
a harmonious and dynamic monogram
improvement on my current one compartment wallet
I made a couple variations on my initials CTW and tried them out in a business card setting.
I then finalized my monogram design and tried finding a color palette that represents me.
I designed my perfect wallet: a place to hold a precious photo, an easy access pocket, and monogram keychain (I love detachable accessories).
My personal wallet used as an everyday item
Food Container Process
find colors that match my snack's healthy ingredients
visually represent the flavors in a playful and delicious manner
design a snacking experience equipped with a mat, napkin, utensils, and snack container
I first researched the variety of hues pistachio, almond, and cherry products come in.
I then played around with pastel colors and abstract shapes. Looks pretty, but these designs don't give off the most appetizing vibes.
Instead of focusing on shape, I tried using lines instead. I found a digital brush that had a thick weight to it but also enough variation.
final visual mark
A mat can help with preventing messes. I used this opportunity to abstract my brush strokes to show the flavors mixing together.
best abstraction + color choices
