Five A Day – Paper Fruits, Now With Veggies!

Following on from the paper fruits (which you can also see here) I’ve recently been doing a bit more design work on the theme of creating things out of paper, and then transferring them digitally.

Here is some work I’ve done for a project at work! The first thing was to cut out the individual shapes from stiff coloured card, and then glue the pieces together.

To give the project some depth, I balanced some of the items on various height markers- in this case, 5p coins, £1 coins, Naproxin pills and Codydramol pills. Just stuff I had lying around really!




Then I put the photos into Illustrator and Photoshop. I traced around some of the fruits in Illustrator to give them a black stroke, and then brightened and evened out some of the colours in Photoshop.
