Student Spotlight: Post-Colonial Tea Party


A small-scale packaging project using tea bags as a medium for investigating post-colonial terminology and ideas.

Using iconic language of isotypes, layered symbols, and typography, each tea bag definesa single term found within post-colonialdiscourse. Together, the tea bags work to define this discourse using a common medium found in all colonial instances—the British iconographic tea.

Designed by Samantha Perkins a student at Academy of Art University.
