The Candy King

Elvis Candy by Julien Canavezes

This print advertising campaign for Ricola’s herbal drops was designed by JVM studio (with illustration by Julien Canaveses). Each of the six candies included the face of a famous singer like Elvis Presley, Luciano Pavarotti, Madonna, and others. And as part of the marketing strategy these goods were offered to spectators at concerts.
