I am grateful to have had the opportunity to collaborate with the Royal Hawaiian Center marketing team on a foodie pattern inspired by poke and noodles. This October (2019), the Royal Hawaiian Center is giving away a free lunch tote, with said foodie pattern on it, to guests who order two or more signature dishes at any of the center’s participating restaurants.
I was so honored to be invited to their media event to kick off the promotion with tastings and picture perfect displays of all the ono dishes.
I owe a special thanks to the individual who put my name in the mix (you know who you are ;D ) Like I’m mentioned before, my art isn’t anything without anyone to admire it, so my success is thanks to people like her.
Below is a pic of the final design, but scroll on if you’re curious about how the pattern was adapted.
As usual, I started off with a sketch.
Below are the very first vectorized versions of the patterns, when it hadn’t yet been deiced that the pattern would be used specifically for the Ahi and Noodle event.
The Kawaii Pattern was chosen, with a few adjustments. At this time, the client requested that a few of the food items were changed out.
Next, we experimented with the composition of the pattern.
In the end, we settled on the all over repeated pattern.
And that was how we got to the final pattern!
The Royal Hawaiian Design Team did a really nice job designing the part of the bag with the large characters and all the accompanying collateral for their media event! Thank you guys!
To get your hands on the bag, go and eat at the Royal Hawaiian Center and order some signature dishes! For full details, visit their instagram.
