Casseroles can be something quite delicious or questionably strange since they come in many different flavors and types. Generally, I will only try a casserole if it is based off something I like and the combination of ingredients makes sense. Corn Dog Casserole is exactly what it sounds like; the taste and flavor of a corn dog in casserole form. I always love a good corn dog so making something close to it homemade and in good size portion for many to enjoy was ideal. The casserole goes a little farther in ingredients than a regular corn dog with cheddar cheese, green onion, and celery but does not ruin the original corn dog taste. Additionally, Corn Dog Casserole is a healthier option with some vegetables in it and no deep frying.
Corn Dog Casserole consist of two parts visually cornbread mix and hotdogs, so was not visually interesting. So for photography, the focus was to simply show what the casserole was made up of by using five photographs. The main photograph was a close view of the casserole showing the ingredients and texture, keeping it simple and to the point was the best option with an entree like this. The next part of the photography was to showcase the four main ingredients of the casserole determined by the amount of each ingredient. The four photos were of hotdogs, cornbread mix, shredded cheddar cheese, and celery. With the ingredients photos, each photo was kept simple with just the ingredient and background but at a good point of view that showcase the ingredient well enough for anyone to identify what it is.
The logo for Corn Dog Casserole was text only but the arrangement was the key to make it interesting. The idea for the logo was to have the text form the shape of a corn dog. The word “Corn Dog” is the hotdog and breading part and the word “Casserole” the wooden stick. The letters in corn dog worked best capitalized since it needed to have the plump shape of the product with also the letters overlapping one another to help create the shape. The beginning “C” in corn dog can be interpret two different ways as either the top part of the corn dog or a mouth coming in to eat the corn dog, sometimes arranging things a specific way can create good imagery but it is in the eye of the viewer to decide what they see. Now the “G” in corn dog, the letter was used as the thin breading part that covers a little of the wooden stick at the end of the corn dog.
