Choosing illustration vs photography is a fundamental decision when thinking out a new food packaging design. Sometimes you want to use illustration because your competitors are using photography. Illustration can add an element of fantasy, depicting the taste as it exists in the imagination of the consumer. A painting can also add a precious and hi-end look that contrasts with the ubiquitous cheap photoshop collage. (I paint in Photoshop, so have nothing against that.) Or maybe the product just doesn’t photograph well, or at all.
