This is a concept that I made today for the literal packaging of the Direct Mailer for my fake project called WAR MACHINES: the INFANTry. It's wordy, but I'm stuck with it. I'm hoping that this will be the base level of any and all my packaging and graphic design concepts for this project.
I want the inserted booklet to be a pretend joint effort between an artist and an ex-child soldier explaining the process for forced induction. It will be saddle stitch bound (like a taco) and rendered in comic book style.
The inserted brochure will be two sided. One side will be a poster/rally flyer and the other side will have the who's, whats, whens, wheres, hows, and whys of being involved.
I'm going to think of a concept for the 'lollipop gang', but I'm not sure how they're going to top this one.
I have finalized what's happening for the logo. Now it's a matter of what reads well. This is a silhouette of the drawing I re-inked earlier in the blog.
The questions: Is it clear that it is a child?
Do I need to dump the bulky clothing and make him shirtless or try and depict a ragged shirt?
Does the silhouette of his anatomy read well, are they hobbit feet or is it what is needed for a child's foot?
