Halloween 2020 – Pinterest Treat Contest
By Shinobi Hipster | October 30, 2020
This year’s Halloween Pinterest Treat Competition (2020). My 9-5 gig introduced Halloween Pinterest Treat Competitions about 1-2 years ago, I had zero interest in them, but my gf was randomly looking some up after the competition from 2019. She was scrolling through her phone and I instantly gravitated towards this one concept. I can’t remember who the originator of this idea was, but if you do a quick Google search of “Pinterest Halloween Treat Ideas” I’m sure it’s somewhere on the first page of the browser.
I basically took that concept and did my spin on the product labels. I went to Kroger and took a picture of their meat packaging and used that as a primary reference.
The labels are all pun-worthy spins on dark, evil, spooky things combined with some type of meat product. I had too much fun with these. I originally did 8 puns one night, but then added another 8 puns the next night. I made the logo using Freddy Krueger’s clawed glove as a spin on the Kroger name, Kroger/Kruguer, get it *nudge nudge* get it? The store number is #1428, since Elm Street’s address is 1428 Elm Street and instead of getting the discount with your shopper’s card you get it at the cost of your soul.
Had a lot of fun with this quick project. I didn’t want to spend too much time on it, so I knocked it out in one evening, approximately 3-4 hours. Oh and I have a triple utility paper trimmer at home, so for the yellow, discount section I ran the adhesive labels through the perforated blade to give it that tear apart look. >:D
