With the Thanksgiving holiday just a couple of days away, we thought we would help our readers get in the spirit with a festive photo series by artist Hannah Rothstein. The collection, titled "Thanksgiving Special", showcases plates of holiday food, artfully arranged in the styles of several famous artists. Can you guess the artists? I'll name them below.
All photos sourced from www.hrothstein.com. Visit Hannah's website to see the full collection, to purchase prints and to view more of her work.
Answers: 1) Piet Mondrian 2) Vincent van Gogh 3) René Magritte 4) Jackson Pollock. Is anyone else made queasy by the Pollock plate?
This art project caught our attention because we often find ourselves looking to famous artwork for inspiration when designing promotional products. Like Rothstein, we are admirers of Piet Mondrian, and we channeled his style when creating these Sonic mobile phone wallets earlier this year.
Clever artwork can really take your marketing materials to the next level, and it doesn't always require reinventing the wheel. Find inspiration in designs that people already like and know, and adapt it to your product and branding message.
