MORGAN & MILO SHOEBOX
I worked with the design studio Moth to
create the Morgan & Milo shoeboxes. The
boxes are designed to promote recycling and
encourage the end user to keep the box. They
are covered with puzzles, games, mazes,
riddles, quotes, and fun characters. They
are craft boxes screen-printed with white
and green. While creating the illustrations,
I broke the box down into separate panels
and began drawing and refining to fit in as
many games and fun quotes as I could. The
lettering was done as loose and playful as
possible to be very approachable and fun
for the children who would be interacting
with the boxes.
