I began by compiling an inspiration board of images that reflect the ingredients and the color story that I wanted to achieve in my illustrated recipe.
I sketched out a few thumbnails to get the flow of the layout.
Then I drew out all of my design elements on paper as well as a few options for hand lettering.
I decided to base my layout off of the second thumbnail sketch that I did. During the process of creating the layout, the design evolved a bit. I really enjoyed the process of arranging the fruit across the page to fill in the empty spaces. I arranged the design and colored the artwork in Illustrator and then took it into Photoshop to add texture to certain areas.
This was a fun assignment! I look forward to creating more of these. I have posted on TDAC but it is currently pending approval. Thank you Ohn Mar!
