This is Sour Punch Twists and they are sour straws candy. Of course its function is to eat them, but not a whole so you wont see the dentist for a toothache. I saw this first with one of my friends who was sharing them while I was in class. I really like them and bought them. The style of the package or design reminds me of Psychedelia Era because of its crazy colors, lines, and it really stands out when you see it in stores. The typeface fits its theme, yet very modern and easier to read then some Psychedelia fonts. This is more of a modern approach. I like the word PUNCH because it is emphasized well. It really has a punch once you have more then one for sure. I think the artwork is playful, attracting, and illustrated well. What attracted me was fisrt it was candy and because I really like bright funky colors last but not least the design is not written across the package but titled on a angle in my opinion.

This image is a brand name Volcom backpack whatever you want to call it. Its functions is to carry your books in side and also carry your skateboard on the side of the bag. Its more of a punkish look. I saw it in Sun Pacific whatever the store is called in the mall we have in Champaign. I really like the design of the bag because of its colors, the way how typography is placed on the backpack. I went through a phase where I wanted to be a punkish and carry but never happened. The type of style I think it fits it might be psychedelia but I might be wrong. I think the artwork quality stands out. It is well known bag and very expansive back when I bought it. And yes it is a boys bag but who cares these days. It attracted me so I had to buy it, I was going to use it anyway for school so I said why not.

This is an envelop form DHL Global Mail. Okay I am really not sure what this company or thing is about but the function is an envelop. Inside as I read has some type of advertisement lowering your mortgage. This is from my understanding but I saw this in the mail. I really like the design of this it reminds me of Swiss International because of its grid system. Now I am not saying it is from the era but it feel like it has a grid. Everything is aligned and balanced. I think the artwork or the colors is ugly! It has a McDonald s feeling to it. The reason it attracted me because I wanted to see what the hell it was, and the design it came in.
