Design Inspiration: Fireworks Labels

Happy Fourth of July! In honor of our country’s 237th birthday, I’ve compiled some of my favorite fireworks labels and packaging designs. Notice one common theme in these labels is portraying a sense of danger!

Firework labels from the 60’s and 70’s are characterized by colorful repetition of patterns and illustrated elements.

The clouds of ash are highlighted by bold primary colors.



This firecracker seems to mimic the sound of Tommy guns!
