Op Art candy

Icelandic licorice-based pastilles Opal have some great Op Art based packaging. The company was originally started in 1946 and the brand is still going strong.

What’s interesting is that the design was created by artist Atli Mar in 1946.  This clearly pre-dates the ‘official’ Op Art movement by quite some time.

It gets even more interesting when you look back at the Oxydol washing machine powder packaging which was introduced in 1914.

Both designs remind me of the classic Mexico 1968 Olympics poster.

If you’re interested in trying Opals you can buy them here.
