My most recent project with Pizza A Casa pizza school was this nifty souvenir pen. Mark Bello wanted the illustrations to be reminiscent of pizza box graphics, but with the quality of artwork found in the DIY Pizza Pie app. We’re going to complete the circle by using these illustrations on take-home boxes for pizza school graduates.
Here’s my original design beside the version we used for the pen. Any puzzle fiends out there, can you spot the differences (there are four)?
I like doing projects with Pizza A Casa’s Mark Bello. We share a fondness for absurdity and old school commercial graphics. The Pizza A Casa character I created puts a spin on the ubiquitous “winking chef”, representing the company’s translated name, “Pizza At Home”.
Last week, Mark sent me one of the new bags we designed together. I took it out on an inaugural pizza-supply shopping trip along St. Clair West this morning.
