(ILLUSTRATION & GRAPHIC DESIGN)
The illustrations are inspired by Colombia's flora and fauna, the artisan fabrics' textures, and a rich color palette representing the tropical seasons. You can see from the beautiful orchids to the palm trees surrounding the Wayuu community. The merchandise applications created were cards, stickers, pins, special packaging paper, and more.
WAPA HANDMADE IS AN ONLINE STORE DEDICATED TO EMPOWERING WOMEN. THEIR PRODUCTS ARE 100% HANDMADE BY FEMALE INDIGENOUS ARTISANS FROM COLOMBIA.
THEY PRESERVE THE TRADITIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF A HISPANIC-MADE PRODUCT, WITH A SPLASH OF MODERN FASHIONABLE TRENDS.
The project started with the creation of illustrations applied to merchandise capable of carrying the essence of Colombian culture and the hands of Wayuu artisans. I studied the culture and iconic aspects of the tribe and country so that the unboxing experience would bring the art of the Wayuu community to the world.
