Title

Traveler’s Spicebox, identity and packaging

Format

Senior Art and Design Exhibition

Abstract/Artist Statement

I design to generate a concept driven message that changes and informs our outward perceptions of the world. In my work, I am influenced by all things around me — in nature and objects, from colors to shapes — but also from the variety of design styles from the past. Rather than set them as “rules,” I allow historical periods influence my designs. Such designs that inspire my appreciation of simplicity and use of dynamic space are the works from the Bauhaus. Although with minimal elements, this period is bold in form and communicates the meaning with straightforwardness. My designs have this sense of purpose.My Spicebox packaging project shows how people connect through culture and history by the migration of spices. Coming from different regions around the world, my spices bring out the flavorful history of the specific cultures that has produced them. They bring awareness to the relation between cultures and the ways ideas are exchanged. We share our recipes, traditions, and our history with others, giving us a broader perspective of the world around us. My design keeps a natural, yet, clean look that is environmentally conscious, tapping into the natural goodness of the spices.
