Flavors From Home
Print Design, Photography
A set of twelve cards introducing the essential Asian sauces from my childhood, that make me feel at home no matter where I am. Growing up, I was enamored at the variety and complexity within each sauce, and as sauces are an integral part to every Asian cuisine, I wanted to showcase a little bit of home. I chose to use photography to help people unfamiliar with the sauces get a sense for their texture and color, and familiarize themselves with what otherwise might seem alien to them.
For the front side of the cards, I knew I wanted an engaging way to showcase the sauces. I originally went for an eyecatching illustrative look, but ultimately decided to go with the simple textural design.
For the back of the cards, I played around with imagery, stickers, and illustration. I felt they took away from the clean and impactful design on the front, and decided to mirror the Chinese text instead.
