Eugenia Mello
The Gift of Giving

Design Product & Packaging

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
The idea was to create an image that would speak to the sensation of gifting an experience. Considering gift-giving as an action, this was an opportunity to illustrate how that experience modifies the body and creates connections between characters. The result is a colorful, heterogeneous, warm group of characters, connected in a moment in motion.

How was the illustration used:
The final illustration had to work both on a small scale as their special edition gift bags and as the wall art for a large piece of furniture in their headquarters
