One Can Make a Difference. We are excited to be participating in the upcoming CANstruction Boston 2014 happening this weekend at the Boston Society of Architects, Atlantic Wharf. Payette creatives and volunteers look forward to this every year: generating ideas and inspiration and group execution on build day. Our ideas have been brewing since June when the Payette CANstruction team rounded up their concept votes from Staff.

This year’s theme–POP CULTURE–is described as “This could be a sculpture representing the entirety of ideas, perspectives, attitudes, images and other phenomena heavily influenced by mass media in the late 20th and early 21st century. Pop Culture encompasses not only trends and fads but political figures, athletes, celebrities and even cartoon characters that capture the public imagination.”

Below: process images from Payette’s entry last year; interesting to see how the endless array of branded canned goods can transpire to the perfect color palette. Design decisions are everywhere!
