An unexpected background and overlaid foil make this skull-centric poster stand out from the pack. While the skull in this brand usually grazes simple backgrounds created by sauces and other edible items it manages to keep up the good charisma surrounded by geometric shapes.

Project Description

The MEXICO Food & Liquor brand is built on much more than just a humble logo, with supporting brand elements including an iconic Dia de los Muertos skull. The small-run silkscreen process, along with a gold-foil detailing turned the iconic branded illustration into a rare and highly sought-after collector's item.

Production Lesson(s)

The team at Art Rite are real craftsmen who take pride in what they do. I think it's important working with a printer who doesn't just see it as a (highly-technical) labour job, but a key element in producing something of value, especially for a poster like this one which was a small run produced as an extremely limited edition collector's item.”
