This assignment was on of the most intricate pieces of work I have constructed thus far. It took a lot of trial and error to get the cereal box cover I was happy with.
I used a website called sketchpad to construct my cereal box. It is like an online drawing canvas. I drew out the lines of the rectangle box, and then I painted in the yellow for the color of the box. After that, I inserted my mascot and a picture of the wheat cereal. I wanted it to look like the cowboy was lassoing in the bowl of cereal.
I wanted to incorporate our theme of western into the assignment, that’s why I made the mascot a cowboy. I also am a big fan of alliteration so Western Wheats came to my head pretty quickly, given that Frosted Mini Wheats are my favorite cereal. I wanted it to be healthy so I added the cliché facts about calories per serving and the amount of minerals and vitamins in it. The website I used allows you to insert different textboxes and fonts, which made it convenient to put different types of information on the box.
I was pleased with the outcome of it. I think the cowboy mascot makes it memorable, because there’s nothing like that on the shelves. It’s the Best in the West! Lol!
