Fruit box label

Bitter Fruit Series - GMOsanto

by Trajan

This series was conceived 15 years ago. I was watching a special on our food supply and genetically modified as well as radiated food.
I though of this series, of which this is the first one, called "Bitter Fruit".

I wanted to utilize the fruit labels from the 40's and 50's as a starting point.

Old fruit labels are rather interesting but do follow a common theme. Usually there is large piece of fruit in a corner. This is followed with a scene of bucolic fields or a large house with fruit trees disappearing into the distance in the center.

Then text that jumps out at you with the main name of the farm followed by some secondary saying at the bottom.

This is the format I used.
Only I did it as a reflection on today's large agribusiness genetically modified foods.

I am going for a rather retro look with a modern message.

Thanks for viewing!
