I wanted to help people appreciate the beauty of their

    Packaging DesignAs a personal project to try and add some different contextualisation to my illustration work, I have been working on incorporating my illustrations into packaging designs, mostly food focused, as well as challenging my hatred for typography by creating the necessary branding for these hypothetical products too!
