Vintage Florida-Inspired Bandana
I was looking at a lot of ephemera from the 50's and 60's for Florida tourism which inspired me to create something new with the flare of the past. For the illustration style, I mimicked the brush pen look of that time by having a lot of variation in the line weights, simplified strokes, and slight off-register printing.
I also created a belly band for the packaging which was also done in a vintage-inspired design style. The paper I used had a lot of tooth, an off-white cream color, and I tore the edges instead of cutting them to give it that beachy ruggedness vibe. The backs interlocked together using two simple cuts so no tape or glue was necessary. I think this gives the whole unpackaging experience a lot of luxury and makes for more sustainable packaging.
For this project, I worked in every step of the process.
