Avery Dennison Vintage Cookbook – Vincent Absinth
Graphic Design, Packaging, Product Design
- 2023


This dish may seem simple on the surface, but when you look deeper into it, different flavors come into play. And it’s natural, because it relies on a little exotic ingredient that doesn’t come around very often. Inspired by a famous painter and his symbolic dash into madness, this recipe takes a classic form and spins it upside down with a generous portion of baroque elements and a pinch of surrealism.

How do you cook a vintage design? 

Well, it’s not that hard, if you follow the recipe! Just take a large chunk of packaging design experience, divide it into several parts for convenience, mix in a glass of pure cask-strength inspiration, add a tablespoon of local ethnic spices, and sprinkle it with some craziness for seasoning. Sounds simple, doesn’t it?
