Inspired by Rick and Morty, McDonald's introduced a collection of new dipping sauces for their Buttermilk Crispy Tenders in the fall of 2017. And owing to how dedicated people are to their sauces, they commissioned Delicious Design League to make gig posters of each one, embodying their unique flavor attributes.
I'm the kind of person who usually craves a sauce and makes something around it, so this was a total dream! I strapped on my cowboy boots and illustrated the characteristics of the Tangy Barbecue with a smoky desert scene.
Growing up, I was always called "Chicken Tender" because of my last name (pronounced Luh-tender), so it's pretty cool to be designing for my elementary school namesake.
