Banana Benders is a cute reference to the nickname of Queenslanders and it’s a nod to the old nickname of Brisbane – Banana City. Using an all over fruit pattern also references the Northey Street organic markets and farm.
I chose to create something that was super fun and instagram worthy, as well as a humorous link to our city/state’s history of nicknames, as well as linking a community space that is in such close proximity to the box.
I’m hoping viewers will use the bananas as a little instagram moment, when op shopping across the road, when taking a stroll if staying or visiting someone in the nearby hospital, when visiting Northey Street Markets or using it as a marker when giving directions to visitors. I know a lot of after work congestion can accumulate there too, so it would be nice to give the drivers something to giggle or smile at when sitting in traffic.
