The Tropical Punch Package Design

Tropicalismo is the artistic inspiration behind our product line.

It was an art movement that exploded in Brazil in the late 60’s and early 70’s and crossed many artistic disciplines, like music, poetry, dance and writing.  It critiqued and challenged cultural norms. The followers of the movement were intellectuals from different cultural backgrounds but who had in common the ideal of a cultural melting pot,  i.e. the musicians who like to mix samba drums with electric guitar and were huge fans of American pop culture.

Influenced by this art movement, our creative manager, Fernando DaSilva (who is Brazilian) hand drew the artwork for our package which summarizes all the elements that were the main sources for movement.

 There are over 100 products in the complete Tropical Punch Collection.

We are launching our Tropical Punch collection this Saturday in California at the Craft and Hobby Show.  

The ordinary becomes extraordinary with this exciting new program.
