“The assignment was to design packaging and a carrier for three flavors of gourmet popping kernels called Carny Corn. I chose to do a Circus side show act theme including Buttery Bessie (worlds fattest woman), Firey Hot Frank (fire breather) and Sweet & Salty Pip and Pop (siamese twins). I used vintage broadsides as typographical inspiration and manipulated black and white imagery for each label. The bags are printed canvas and are held in a custom made wooden crate with transferred typography.”

    Your idea and concept are really good.

    The whole product has a Gestalt to it.

    Perhaps add some old fashioned popcorn bags to go with the product.

    Very nice work!

    Beautiful design and execution. May I ask how you printed the canvas bags, and transferred the type onto the wooden box? Did you use a provider?

    An overall wonderful concept and final design. Nicely done. :)

    Janie, thank you.
    I backed muslin fabric onto 50lb stock and ran it through an Epson 1400 to print the bags and then sewed them afterward. I used a chemical called Xylene for the transfers on the box.
