I’ve decided that I want to design cosmetics packaging, at least for the one set of comps. I want to make a set of eyeshadow palettes. There will be four compacts that are each a quad of eyeshadow colors. I want to capture the mood of each word (Temperance, Prudence, etc.) and choose the colors of the eyeshadow colors accordingly. In my mind, I want the eyeshadows to be in the standard circular pans in a grid formation, but I may end up going a more creative route like the Typography Film Cases above.
This blog post has a thorough review of the above Stila palettes, and includes pictures of the packaging.
I want the overall feel of the packaging to be old, mystical, and Classical. When I Google images searched “the four virtues” this painting came up as a majority of the results:
I’m not sure who painted it but they look like classical Greek goddesses. I want to incorporate that theme into my designs because the idea of the Four Virtues is very old and there is a beauty in its history. Their origin goes back to Antiquity with Plato.
