Hi everyone

I'm fairly new to this, but to begin with I'd like to make one (or probably) more Red Apple soft packs. I'm an advertising Art Director with 15+ years in the business, so graphic production is not an issue, accuracy however is. During my preliminary 'research' I noticed that there's quite a variety of Red Apple packs out there, which differ greatly in graphics and typography (and of course quality). It seems the packs are also quite different from movie to movie.

I tried searching the forum, but couldn't find 'the ultimate Red Apple' thread. Anyone fell like showing of their enormous knowledge of the topic? ;-)

Thanks in advance!

Hans

Now I'm done with my first "test-build".

I recreated all the artwork in Illustrator, and one of the reasons I choose the 'Inglorious Basterds'-version is because of the clean drawing of the apple and worm. I identified the font of the Red Apple-logo as a modified New Caledonia Black (the capital A and the lowercase p's are modified), drew the logo (which I think came out perfect), and painstakingly tried to identify the small text on the side of the pack, primarily from Kurtyboys photos. One side I got perfect (the one about the Apple Honey and stuff), but the other side I'm still working on (the text ending in 'Established 1910'). If anybody knows what it says exactly I'd sure appreciated some help.

Anyway here's some pictures. They are work-in progress, as there are some details about the text I'm still working on, and I honestly forgot to 'blur' the white halo around the apple-graphic before printing, but let me know what you think.

Maybe you'd like to contact this guy at http://www.atlas-repropaperwork.com/

He's familiar with a lot of WWII paper props, including some US cigarettes. IF the WWII Red Apples are based on a vintage US pack, he may be able to help you discern the text.
