Everyday products get quirky with designs by Can Of Juice.
FUELLED by his love for designs, Vishvan Saran, based in Bengaluru, left behind his job in a sports management company last year. The 29-year-old had been working on an idea way back in 2014, when he created Can Of Juice as a platform for little known designers and illustrators to curate their work for a wider market. Now he collaborates with illustrators whose designs he digitally prints on his in-house products like cotton table mats and cushion covers, wooden and fibre board-based trays, coasters, wall hangings and notebooks. Can Of Juice also relaunched its site this March, with the theme, Lemons and Melons, featuring vibrant colours.
Their signature products include wood-cut marquees, and adult colouring books. “We try to come up with artistic products that require a lot of handiwork. Inspired by the Day of the Dead festival in Mexico, where painted skulls are displayed, we hand mould skulls using fibre glass and distribute them to different artists to paint them,” shares Saran. “We wanted something very colourful like landscapes and aquatic life to be depicted on these skulls,” he explains, adding that he will soon introduce wooden-framed sunglasses and flip-flops, and open a store in Bengaluru this December.
