Austrian designer Christine Puchner studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, Nuremberg. She’s currently studying to become a 64keys expert and does freelance graphic design work from her studio near Vienna. Puchner has received many awards and recognition from various publications and competitions like the 1996 17th International Biennale of Graphic-Design in Brno, Czech Republic.
Her entry “Canned Fish ‘Young Chars’ for a Viennese Manufactory” was designed for Hink Manufaktur Wien, a producer of artisan meat spreads. The design features a delicate box with hand-drawn fish wrapping around the front. The deep blue background allows for the subtle streaks of vibrant red of the fishes’ bodies to pop. Additionally, the iconic Hink Manufaktur Wien logo, emblazoned in white, is situated at the top. Even if you’re not a seafood lover, you’ll appreciate Puchner’s design that captures the company’s motto, “enjoyment and passion.”
