Stacy's Rise Project

Design Product & Packaging

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
Made for “Stacy’s Rise Project” by Stacy’s, a project supporting female-founded businesses along their journey. The project created limited edition bags of pita chips and limited signed prints to raise funding for female businesses. My phase to interpret was “INSPITARION”. I wanted to create an image with women dreaming freely, with an atmosphere of their inspirations running wild.

How was the illustration used:
The illustration was used for limited edition packaging for Stacey’s pita chips, with a signed print that came with each bag. Created for "Stacy's Rise Project", which raised funds for and helped female entrepreneurs. Image also used for promotional material for project.

How did you make this work:
Originally painted with ink on paper, then individual images were combined digitally. I usually paint layered images on a single sheet of paper using ink, but I painted individual layers separately specially for this project in order to create a gif animation.
