You might first wonder about the relationship established by these Krylon tins between pineapples and the color pink, for instance. These spray paint cans have been given a fresh facelift to brand them as fundraising products for Hawaiian schools. In order to link the beneficiaries with the pigment product, the student designer took a highly visual and photographic approach, that actually best celebrates the wonder of color.

Lili'uolani Pickford of Seattle began with matte foundations for the hues of each spray paint bottle, accenting them with images of lizards, chickens, goats and fruits. The artist at heart can begin to appreciate blue as the blue sky backdrop of banana trees, and the red as the subtle features of a rooster. The strategy is imaginative, and would appeal to consumers who are browsing for paints with a creative mindset––which is almost always the case.
