Resident Objects is an instagram based shop that sells kitschy vintage home goods. The success of their branding is based on the strength of their photography, often creating a fuzzy or dreamy effect that pulls you in! Starting at the beginning of the month, they ran a contest to find key art that would be printed on a thank-you card for their customers. The art had to be of an object they sell or sold; Other than that there were no other constraints.
I browsed through their instagram account to see what items or objects felt unique to the brand. For me it was the swan- it wasn't the same object, (I saw everything from swan-shaped perfume bottles to lamps) but it was often the same iconic silhouette. My illustration ended up being based off a photo of a pink swan dish. To evoke the dreamy quality I get from Resident Objects, I used a grainy texture with psychedelic gradients, and a groovy typeface that relates to their current logo.
