When a brand artfully collaborates with a visual artist for packaging purposes, you know the result is going to be magical. The well-known visual artist Dewey Saunders has produced artwork for musicians, including one of my all-time favorites, Anderson. Paak has created the most one-of-a-kind design for the hard beverage brand Flying Embers. This limited edition collaboration features botanicals that are effortlessly psychedelic-inspired. From the rainbow butterfly, jewel tones, and floating florals, this can is extraordinarily mind-blowing. As Saunders himself stated, "The artwork is a buzzy representation of what's inside," and we'll drink to that.
Visual artist Dewey Saunders - best known for his mixed media, collage and album artwork for musicians including Anderson .Paak and Future - has designed original tropical psychedelia-inspired packaging for organic hard beverage brand Flying Embers. The limited edition cans flaunt fluid flora looping through flying fauna, resplendent in effervescent jewel tones. Available now, the Saunders / Ginger Berry Boost cans are portable works of art, and even collectible show pieces. This limited release artist collab also includes a custom co-branded soft goods capsule of eco-friendly shirts and hoodies, and a tote bag.
Saunders notes: Working with Flying Embers on the Ginger Berry Boost was the perfect collaboration. Botanicals and plant life are underlying themes in most of my work, so it was nice to shine the light on a purely floral solution for the can art. The collage clusters take on a life of their own - much like the flavors and elements of the drink. I'm very proud of this collaboration - the artwork is a buzzy representation of what's inside."
