My brief was to design packaging that makes pleasing parents and charms children. Parents want a healthy snack to give their children, while the kids want something that looks fun and tastes great. With parents focusing on the health aspects of Mmon's I drew on the packages a family storyline with persimmon characters. Mom and Dad take sunbathe on a beach (dried persimmon), grandma swims with grandchildren in the sea of chocolate (chocolate persimmon), and the whole family has dinner together (persimmon sauce). Lovely atmosphere, bright colors, badges of approval, and clear nutritional information on the package.

This inspiring children's book tells the story of a little girl Mary and her life full of adventures. Mary’s imagination takes you on a visual journey through the curious mind of a 5-year-old who sees life as full of possibilities and amazing things. Through the use of rhythm, color, texture, and emotion, I brought simple stories to life with visuals so that children can comprehend and feel each story.
