Calaveza via Packaging of the World—This caught my eye mainly because of the text label with the overlay of handwritten notes. I love anything that combines typed text and handwritten text because it gives you the illusion that someone read that typed text, took and interest to it, and took the time to mark it up. It’s also interesting to see the “second thoughts” of text and how they are used in design. I also love the eerie yet playful pumpkin-head labels for their shadowy intrigue.
Probably the coolest project I’ll ever get a chance to work on. Title, concept, design, art direction and copy support for the Spring / Summer 2012 cover story of Washingtonian’s Bride & Groom issue. Designed at Design Army.
I’ve realized I had been witnessing for a long time a lack of feelings, those feeling that are at the base of human interaction, cooperation and well-being generally. Although good human interactions and feelings always find a way to be expressed, the hectic lifestyle we are immersed in makes things more difficult, and the high stress levels sometimes lead people to find recovery using medications, pain-relief drugs and so on… The high street market offers a complete range of drugs that should help people recovering from a huge variety of illnesses and their symptoms… but what if those symptoms were only a lack of satisfaction on a spiritual level? I have created a series of alternative medicines, vials that contain concentrated amounts of human feelings and ways of interaction such as Love, Empathy, Peace… I wish they could really work!…but my aim is to show them as a reminder of what sometimes are the only necessary things to live a better and brighter life.
