buy a banana! product site.

For my product placement project, I decided to take the “hands on” tactic quite literally. I also decided that I wanted to do a product that was a bit absurd, and a bit like a game. A banana was a simple product that really sells itself, so it doesn’t really need a product website convincing people to buy one. But it is a way to honor something beloved, and to make it beloved to banana-haters (I’m imagining picky kids). The website tells a story, too, of the experience a person has with a single banana.

I wanted my illustration style to be a bit quirky. I used brush and ink to draw them, which gave the lines a nice texture. It’s a bit rough and a bit strange but it fits the idea of my absurd childlike product ‘game.’ I think it particularly works with the colors. I wanted them to ‘pop’ and so the outlines are in that bright red and navy. The illustrations also help set the website in its own world.
