Handmade Package Design
for Julius Meinl
This project was one of the most challenging for me.
When I was asked to think over a tea package design in the concept of poetic
Julius Meinl brand, I realised that the slogan "JM inspires since 1862."really doesn`t lie!
Am a very crafty person, so for bringing the touch of art to the package,
I decided to paint with watercolor some motives to form from them patterns afterwards.
So there is a work photo above and the photoshop compilation on the next picture.
As we have many great tea blends in JM portfolio I had to think over how to distinguish each of them though keeping the sence of togetherness of the whole product family. So there were 2 options I have seen for that moment: developing new patterns and playing with the colours.
On the pictures under this text you can find my work progress.
This was the first solution for this package. But I didn`t want to stop there.
As the company has a huge history we have some patterns that were already used in the package design. I have redrawn one of them using illustrator and my wacom tablet to apply this replica to my work.
The progress is shown below. Hope you enjoy the journey through my project
