Japanese products are renowned for their bright and vibrant packaging. Who would’ve thought that the same packaging could be used to make even brighter art?
Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi teaches a design class at Renaissance Design Academy and, as part of a class project, asked his students to pick candy packaging of their choice, cut out shapes and colors, and recreate characters and playful scenes.
Darth Vader, R2-D2, and Link all make an appearance in the whimsical scenes. Check them out below and visit Mizuuchi’s website for more.
